(Amesbury) That’s more like it.

Gordon ended a three-game losing streak with a very convincing, 85-52, win over Lesley University in Cambridge on Saturday night in non-league action.

The Scots (3-6) broke a 16-15 game wide open with a run of fifteen unanswered points over an eight minute stretch in the first half.  The cold-shooting Lynx (1-6) trailed 36-20 at halftime and things went downhill for them rapidly in the second half.

The Scots had terrific contributions off the bench against Lesley.

GC Coach Tod Murphy found time early in the game for Craig McFarlane and the seldom-used senior had a big part in Gordon’s breakaway.

Freshman Carter Bras had a remarkable 15-point second half with no missed shots and three rebounds.

Udoka Obiora had his best game (6 points and 8 rebounds) for Gordon against Lesley

Boxscore

Gordon finishes the 2014 part of their schedule with a solid win.  The next game will be at WPI on January 2nd versus Worcester State.

The Lesley win aside, the Scots will have fifteen Commonwealth Coast Conference games after the 2015 opener with Worcester State to improve their 1-2 league record and get positioned to defend their CCC title in the New Year.

Christmas, the time we remember what God did and rejoice that He cared that much for us.  How blessed we are!
