The Lady Patriots opened up the night and fell behind quick as the Lady Crusaders went on a 13-0 run. Though battling back and even coming within ten points with 6 minutes remaining in the game, the Lady Patriots fell the the Crusaders 62-76.
The Lady Patriots were led by starting point guard Shanice Hill and forward Morgan Hale who both had a total of 13 points, but despite their efforts, shots were simply not falling for the team as a whole – making only 22 out of 71 shots on the night. Issues came in the paint as it has seemed a constant with the Lady’s team this year as they allowed the Lady Crusaders 20 second chance points while only taking 8 themselves. The Crusdaers were led by freshman Seana Stoia who was 11-11 from the charity stripe and 6-9 from the field, putting up a total of 23 points on the night.
Diamond Martinez, though falling short from behind the arc, added 11 points, 6 steals, and 3 assists.
The Lady Patriots fall to 3-3 on the season with their next game coming Tuesday, December 10th against El Centro at home starting at 6 pm.
