Falling behind early is never a good thing for a basketball team and it proved costly for the Augustana College women in Wednesday's CCIW opener.

The hosting Augie Vikings fell behind 16-2 to the North Park Vikings. While able to fight back, the hosts came up short, falling 46-38 at the Carver Center.

Not helping Augie's cause was a horrendous night on the offensive end. The hosts were just 14-of-48 from the field (29.2 percent), which included making just 2-of-17 3-pointers. At the half, Augie was 0-9 from beyond the arc.

Augustana (4-7, 0-1 CCIW) was led by Jessica Baids' 14 points. Kayla Boers grabbed eight rebounds to help Augie to a 39-33 edge on the glass.

The early deficit was too much to overcome, although Augie did make a game of it late. Coach Mark Beinborn's club trailed by as many as 16 in the second half before whittling it down. With 6:31 left, a Gianna Pecora jumper made it 39-31. Baids hit a jumper and Molly Etheridge nailed two free throws to make it a 39-35 game with 4:59 left.

From there, though, Augie was was just 1-for-4 from the field, 1-for-3 from the free-throw line and had three turnovers. as the guests were able to hold on.

North Park (10-2, 1-0 CCIW) was led by Kamauria Acree's 11 points.
