YORK, Neb - York College battled back after a six point halftime deficit to take a one point lead going into the final quarter Saturday afternoon. However, the Spires from the University of St. Mary went on a 10-0 run to start the fourth quarter and outscore the Panthers 33-14 in the frame.
York played some of its best basketball of the season as their defense held tough and forced 25 turnovers in the game. Unfortunately, foul trouble on the post players forced the Panthers to take the ball outside and York struggled from beyond the arc shooting just 18% on 5-of-27.
The Panthers were outrebounded 47-38 and picked up 11 more fouls. Julissa Vargas (JR/Los Angeles, CA) led the offensive effort scoring 14 points, ten of those coming in the third quarter. Kelsey Sharkey (JR/Lakeview, SD) scored 13 points and a team high five rebounds. Justine Manjarrez (JR/Montebello, CA) scored ten points as well.
York travels to Bartlesville, Oklahoma on Tuesday for a midweek matchup against Oklahoma Wesleyan.
