MONTECITO, Calif. -

Several Warriors picked up the slack for a poor shooting game from Kelsie Sampson as Westmont College defeated Concordia 70-56 in their Golden State Athletic Conference Tournament opener.

The defending NAIA National Champion Warriors were led by Cora Chan's game-high 16 points and Celina Gougis' 14 points. Sampson made just 4 of 16 shots for 12 points but the All-GSAC performer pulled down a game-high 19 rebounds along with 6 block shots.

Westmont plays at The Master's in Friday's semifinals.
