The first 7-0 scurry came in the first quarter, and it was needed to erase an early five-point V-Hawks lead.

Shayla Karge made back-to-back layups to put the Eagles ahead, and UW-L (3-2) didn’t surrender its lead after that, despite a 9-0 run from Viterbo.

In that 9-0 run from the V-Hawks, Heidi Huebner made a pair of jump shots while Ambree Schlosser scored three points. The V-Hawks’ 9-0 run lasted 2 minutes, 51 seconds. The Eagles committed three turnovers in that stretch.
