Cosumnes River College fell to ARC BEAVERS on Friday, 67-59, even with Chelsea Shirley tallying her 8th double double of the season, scoring 12 points and pulling down 14 rebounds. The Hawks started the fourth quarter on a 15-0 run but key turnovers at the end of the game sealed the Hawks fate. A two-pointer from Kaili Udoffia, ARC BEAVERS helped clinch their win in the fourth quarter.
