OGLESBY—The Carl Sandburg College women’s basketball team couldn’t come back after getting off to a slow start in a 78-72 Arrowhead Conference loss Thursday at Illinois Valley.


The Chargers (8-6, 1-1) fell behind 28-6 and were held without a field goal until 7 minutes, 40 seconds remained in the first half. Despite the early struggles, Sandburg made a big run to close the gap to 32-27 at halftime, but the Eagles (6-8, 1-2) were able to hang on.


Sophomore guard Kaylee Moseley (Taylor Ridge, Ill./Rockridge) hit a career-high five 3-pointers and scored a team-best 21 points for the Chargers. Sophomore forward Marysa Remick (Victoria, Ill./ROWVA) added 17 and sophomore guard Jordyn Chasteen (Canton, Ill./Canton) finished with 14 points.


IVCC’s Jessica Jessen led all players with 23 points and was one of four Eagles to reach double figures.


“After a poor start to the game offensively we did some nice things that gave us a chance to come back and win,” Sandburg coach Mike Bailey said. “Defensively we were not very good the whole night, and even when we forced a miss we struggled on the defensive glass.”


The Chargers travel to face third-ranked Illinois Central at 2 p.m. Saturday for a nonconference contest.
