Lady Flash fall at Morehead State

MOREHEAD, Ky — The Saint Francis women’s basketball team (1-3, 0-0 NEC) dropped a battle with Morehead State (1-2, 0-0 OVC) on Sunday, 65-54.

The Red Flash showed an impressive display of fight in the fourth quarter. Many bounces were going against SFU, but the team continued to battle and bite into the Eagles lead. With five minutes remaining, SFU cut the lead down to one point, 52-51, after a Karson Swogger jumpshot. That was the closest the Red Flash got, though, as Morehead answered on the other end and extended its lead back up to eight before SFU was forced to foul. The game became out of reach with about 45 seconds to go, and Morehead State defeated the Red Flash.
