FITCHBURG, Mass. — Fitchburg State University's Amy Fahey had a game high 27 points and Rebecca Goreham added 19 rebounds in the Falcons 81-54 win over the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts Tuesday night.

The Trailblazers are now 13-11 overall, 6-5 in conference play. Fitchburg avenges an earlier loss at MCLA and improves to 16-8 overall, 4-7 in the MASCAC.

MCLA started slowly falling behind 12-2 right out of the gates. The Trailblazers would respond with their own 12-2 spurt to tie the game at 14 all midway through the first half.

The Falcons would seize control though, outscoring MCLA 22-4 the remainder of the half to double up MCLA at halftime at 36-18. The lead would grow to 27 late in the second half. MCLA never got closer than the halftime margin.

The Trailblazers were hurt by early foul trouble as Alie Dobrovolc only played 3 first half minutes. Fellow senior Jen Wehner went down with an apparent ankle injury early in the opening half as well.

Fahey tallied her 27 points on 10-18 shooting. She would add 7 rebounds. Goreham completed the double double by adding 10 points. The Falcons held a sizable 56-43 edge off the glass.

MCLA was held to a season low point total in the loss. No player reached double figures as Dobrovolc and Katelyn Chenevert each finished with 8 points. MCLA was hampered by 23 turnovers while shooting just 29 percent in the game.

The Trailblazers will wrap up the regular season on Saturday when they travel to Bridgewater State University at 1 p.m.
