Callie Harwood leads Whitworth women past Pacific Lutheran

From staff and wire reports

Callie Harwood scored 12 points to lead four in double figures and Whitworth dominated the boards 50-24 in a 66-43 win over visiting Pacific Lutheran at the Whitworth University Fieldhouse on Saturday on the back end of a four-game Northwest Conference home stretch.

Whitworth improves to 3-3 in the NWC (7-8 overall) and Pacific Lutheran stays winless in the conference at 0-6 (1-14 overall).

Madison Moffat recorded a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds, while Jessica Thoens and Erika Kuehn both chipped in 10 points.

The Pirates dominated control of the game, racing out to a 16-7 lead after the first quarter and never looking back. The Pirates finished the game 24 of 58 (41.4 percent) from the floor, but just 2 of 10 from behind the arc.

Whitworth held Pacific Lutheran to 28.8 percent shooting and 1 of 7 from long range.

The Pirates will take a road trip to Oregon next weekend to battle Lewis & Clark and George Fox on Saturday and Sunday.
