Jessie Igoe was a force but she fouled out late in the game.Husson came roaring back. First Bethany Sevey with one of her back to back threes.Then it was a couple of guards. Amanda Gifford to Kelli Murray. Gifford played her freshman year at Bates.The Eagles got it all even with 4:00 minutes to play. But Bates held them off after that. The Bobcats escaped with a win tonight, the final 84-79.
