SCHENECTADY, N.Y. — The Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts Trailblazers (3-3) trimmed a double-digit second-half deficit to a point in the final minute, but host Union College held off the Trailblazers, defeating them 74-69 in a hard fought non-conference matchup.

Union was led by Kate Thompson's monster double-double effort of 32 points and 16 rebounds. MCLA was led by senior Lucy Tremblay who scored a season-high 25 points. The guard is now just 15 points shy of 1,000 for her career.
 
Union scored the final six points of the opening half to hold a 39-29 lead at halftime. After scoring the first two baskets of the second period, Union opened up a 14-point margin. The lead reached 15 points before MCLA rallied behind Tremblay.
 
After back and forth action and Union now holding a 67-63 lead with just two minutes left, Tremblay once again dialed in from deep to cut the deficit to just one. Union answered on the other end with a Thompson basket, but MCLA had possession with a chance to tie.
 
MCLA misfired on their next two possessions giving Union a chance to extend out to 71-66. A Danielle Beauchamp three pointer gave MCLA hope with 22 seconds left, but Union didn't allow another point while adding three free throws to hold on.
 
Thompson was 16-24 from the floor to notch her 32 points. She was joined in double figures by Brittney Kenney who finished with 11 points.
 
Tremblay was 8-21 to account for her 25 points. She led MCLA with a team-high seven rebounds. Beauchamp collected four three-pointers en route to her 16 points. Chenevert added 13, while Scolpino finished with 11.
 
Union held a commanding 53-30 rebounding margin, but were forced into 24 turnovers on the night compared to just 11 for MCLA.
