>Bona streak snapped

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio -- Bowling Green's Kate Achter scored 32 points as the Falcons stormed back in the second half and defeated St. Bonaventure, 68-61, ending the Bonnies' five-game winning streak.

Dana Mitchell led Bona with 17 points while Erica Schiefen had 11.

The Bonnies were playing the first of 10 straight games away from home until the return to the Reilly Center for a Jan. 12 Atlantic 10 Conference game against Saint Joseph's.

Bowling Green (4-0) routed the Bonnies, 71-46, at the Reilly Center last season.

Achter, a 5-foot-8 senior, opened with the game's first 10 points and scored the Falcons' final eight points in the come-from-behind victory.
