CRESSON, PA —
Ginger Fanelli scored 12 of her team-high 19 points in the final 12:46 as host Mount Aloysius overcame a 10-point second half deficit to hand Frostburg State a 64-60 loss Tuesday night at the Mount Aloysius Health and Fitness Center.
The Bobcats (5-4) held a 41-31 advantage with 13:36 remaining before the Mounties went on a 14-4 run over the next 3:25 to tie the game at 45. Fanelli and Lindsay Black each scored five points in the spurt, while Frostburg State sophomore Tracey Little (La Vale, Md./Allegany) drained two buckets.
Senior Kim Faust (Ambler, Pa./Upper Dublin) scored FSU's next six points to give her team a 51-48 advantage at the 8:08 mark, but Fanelli sank her fifth three-pointer of the night in a 7-0 run that put Mount Aloysius ahead, 55-51.
The Mounties stretched their lead to 62-55 with 2:18 to play before FSU made its last run. Senior Holly Myers (York, Pa./York) nailed the last of her four three-pointers before Faust sank a jumper that pulled the Bobcats to within 62-60 with 52 seconds remaining.
However, Fanelli sealed the win with a pair of free throws in the closing seconds to send FSU to its third straight defeat.
Myers continued her recent hot streak, scoring a team-high 19 points on 7-of-12 shooting and adding four rebounds and three assists. She is averaging 16.5 points in her last four games.
Little added 15 points, nine rebounds and three assists, while Faust had 11 points and nine rebounds.
Michele Sauserman had 13 points, 10 assists and three steals, and Randi Baker added 10 points and five rebounds for the Mounties, who hit 12-of-16 free throw attempts in the second half.
The Bobcats will look to snap their skid when they host Seton Hill on Saturday at noon.
