TRURO - A tough fourth quarter cost the NSAC Rams their second victory of the season Saturday in ACAA men's basketball.
The Rams were nipped 65-63 by the Crandall Chargers (5-5) at Langille Athletic Centre, leaving the Rams (1-9) seventh in the eight-team conference.
The hard-working Rams battled the Chargers all game and held a one-point lead at half time before getting outscored 18-9 in the fourth quarter. Jeremy Bokma led the Rams with seven points and nine rebounds.
In women's action, the Rams were also denied their second victory in a 69-45 loss to the Chargers, who claimed their first win. The Rams (1-8) are tied seventh in their eight-team conference with Crandall, which improved to 1-6.
Hillary Hopper netted a team-high 16 points for the Rams and added 12 rebounds.
Both teams are back in action this weekend when they host the Saint John Seawolves Friday and the St. Thomas Tommies Saturday.
