The Golden Eagles opened their 2011-12 campaign on the road at Holy Cross and came away with a 65-52 victory. The Golden Eagles used a big first half and rode that out for the win. Melissa Veltkamp
and Samantha Flietstra
led the Golden Eagles with 22 and 16 points respectively. Veltkamp shot just under 50% from the field making 7 of 15 shots including 3 of 9 from long range. Veltkamp also grabbed 11 rebounds to record her first double double of the season. Flietstra made 7 of 12 of her shots from the floor and 2 of 3 from the foul line. The Golden Eagles didn't shoot as well in the second half and Holy Cross outscored them 27-23 but the Golden Eagles still held a 13 point lead (65-52) at the end of the game. Cornerstone will return to action next Friday night when they take on Goshen College at the St. Francis Tournament in Fort Wayne next Friday at 3:00 p.m.
