BRIDGEWATER, Va. - Christopher Newport outscored Bridgewater 31-17 in the first quarter Wednesday night and the 14th-ranked Captains went on to defeat the Eagles 102-56 in a non-conference contest at Nininger Hall.
CNU's pressure defense, that forced 42 turnovers, and a cold-shooting night by the Eagles led to the Captains' victory. The Captains have forced at least 30 turnovers in all six of their games this season.
CNU (6-0) placed five players in double figures. The Captains were paced by Kiana Kirkland with 15 points.
Bridgewater, now 4-2 on the season, returns to conference action Sunday afternoon when the Eagles host Randolph College.
