A valiant effort came up a little short as the Lady Eagles battled back from down double-digits twice, but could not ultimately overcome a quality opponent in the opening round of the Parkway Christmas Tournament.
A 11-2 run to start the second quarter gave the Eagles a brief lead at 18-17, and they would tie it again in the third quarter before ultimately falling 47-36.
The Eagles were led by Olivia Pannecouk who scored 13 points and added 11 rebounds and by Rebecca Shea with 9 points 13 rebounds and four steals.
Caroline Schlaf had a season high five points, Madison Hasse added a three-pointer and Nikki Lipski chipped in with seven rebounds while Kayle Collins led the team with four assists.
The Stars of St. Catherine’s of Sienna Academy (6-1) would go on to win the tournament Championship Friday defeating St. Francis of Cabrini 41-31.
