By halftime, Redwoods had a 35-P,2 lead. Redwoods piled on 52 more points in the second half compared to FRC's 29 points. Amy Yeager, who averaged nearly 14 points per game this season, didn't sink a single shot. The last time the two teams faced each other, Yeager scored 17 points. The highlight of the Eagles' offense was Brittany McFalls, who scored eight points and had 14 rebounds. White credited Natasha Reel and Kaitlin Boyd for their rebounding skills as well, stating they gave the offense something to work with. FRC has two games remaining in its season. The Eagles will play their last home game this Saturday against Lassen College at 5:30 p.m. FRC will travel to Butte College on Jan. 20 to finish up its season.
