The women’s basketball team lost the Veterans Day Classic over the weekend.

The championship game was a heartbreaker for the Lancers, who lost that game against Chaffey 87-66.

“Chaffey is a good team. We had our work cut out for us in this game,” said Head Coach Joe Peron. “We put too much energy in the last two games.”

There was hope for the Lancers in the last three minutes of the game. It started as an eight-point run to end the game. “It looked like we were playing basketball the last three minutes,” Coach Peron said.

Sophomore forward Tonisha Lacey and sophomore guard Marquetta Stokes won PCC all tournament awards.

The semi-final game was against Cypress Chargers, a rematch of the championship game from a year ago. It was decided in the final seconds of the game. Stokes had the game winning free throw with 14.6 seconds remaining.

The game was a hard and physical game with PCC coming out on top 64-63.

“The pressure was a little too much,” said Stokes after the game. “I am glad it went in after I missed the first. I kept my composure even though it was a high pressure situation.”

The first game was against Citrus College on Nov. 11 evening. The Lancers played hard defense, with the first half score at 33-31. The Lancers had a rally to finish with four minutes left in the game.

Vera Machado a sophomore guard started the rally and finished the game 64-58.     

“I was nervous in the first half, I didn’t really play well,” said Machado. “I thought it was the jitters. I am a sophomore it’s my role to lead the team.”
