The Warriors did a little better at 4-for-15 from the field, but it proved to be enough.
Junior guard Keren Hogue paced San Diego Christian with 17 points, going 6-for-12 from the floor. However, the balance of the Hawks roster was just 9-for-35 (25.7 percent),
Hogue, a product of Imperial Valley College, also paced the defense with 7 steals, while sharing rebounding honors with teammate Courtney Cranston with 7 boards.
For the Warriors, the lone player to score in double-figures was Bobbie Purify (12 points), as the club went just 1-for-9 from beyond the arc, and an equally poor 9-of-23 (39.1 percent) from the foul line.
The teams meet again on Saturday at 11 a.m., capping a home-and-home series at the Kroc Center on University Avenue.
