by Brock Borgeson, [email protected]

ST. PETER, Minn. – Simpson fell 72-63 to UW-River Falls in the Gustavus Tip-Off opener on Friday night, never recovering from a 14-3 run by the Falcons (2-0).

Simpson (1-2) got behind for good when Taylor Augustine hit a jumper, putting UW-River Falls ahead 23-22 – a lead they would never relinquish. 

Mackenzie Haupt, who led the Storm with 16 points, hit a pair of free throws to cut the Falcons lead to 63-67, but UW-River Falls closed the door on the line.

Four players scored in double-figures for the Falcons, led by Taylor Karge’s 22 points and seven rebounds. Richell Mehus hit 9 of 12 free throws on her way to 14 points.

Noreen Morrow continued her production in a newly acquired starting role, scoring 10 points. Whitney Van Wyk was a jack-of-all-trades once again, scoring eight points, notching five boards, three assists and an eye-popping five steals. 

Simpson has another chance tomorrow and it’ll be against UW-Stout at 1 p.m. in the Gustavus Tip-Off.
