Women's Basketball Loses to Penn State Behrend
01/27/2006

ERIE, Pa. — Jessica Serafin scored 15 points as Penn State Behrend downed Frostburg State, 69-56, in Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference women’s basketball action Friday evening.

The Bobcats fell to 11-5 overall and 7-3 in the AMCC while the Lions improved to 10-6 overall and 7-3 in the league as the teams split the regular-season series at one game apiece.

PSB shot 58.3 percent (14-of-24) in the first half while FSU mustered just 25.8 percent (8-of-31). Frostburg State, which never led in the game, tied the game at six with a freshman Caryn Wright (Baltimore, Md./Western Tech) layup at the 16:35 mark.

Penn State Behrend would then take over, opening a 12-6 lead a little over two minutes later. FSU would cut the lead to two, 14-12 at 10:57, but the hosts regained control pushing the lead to eight points, 21-13, at 8:48 when Rachel Slomski made a layup.

Senior Stephanie Watts (Baltimore, Md./North County) made back-to-back three pointers as Frostburg State again cut the deficit to two, 23-21, with 4:58 remaining in the half. However, Penn State Behrend went on a 13-0 run to close out the half with a 36-21 lead.

FSU opened the second half by narrowing the Lion lead to eight points, 43-35, with 13:43 to play, but that was as close as it would get. Over the next few minutes, PSB extended its lead to 52-35 and later pushed its lead to a game-high 20 points, 69-49, with just 1:29 remaining. The Bobcats would make one last charge, cutting the Lion lead to 13 points as time expired.

The Bobcats faired better in the second half shooting 48.3 percent (14-of-29), but were unable to overcome their first-half struggles.

Frostburg State was led by junior Krystin Hargrove (Silver Spring, Md./Springbrook) and Wright who each scored 15 points followed by Watts with 14.

The Bobcats return to action tomorrow at 4:00 pm when they travel to Pitt-Bradford.
