SALEM, Mass. — The Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts women's basketball team scored the opening basket, but then Salem State University went on a 13-2 run to seize control Tuesday night. 

With the loss, MCLA is now 8-12 overall (0-7 MASCAC), suffering their eighth straight loss in the process.  The Vikings are now 9-12 overall and 2-6 in league play. Salem swept the season series.
 
Trailblazer Kaitlyn Chenevert drilled a 3-pointer a minute into the game to give MCLA the early lead, however Salem quickly answered with the 13-2 run to take command at 13-5.  MCLA trimmed the margin to five in the opening half, only to see Salem extend back out. The Vikings led by as many as 12 in the opening 20 minutes.
 
Salem quickly pushed out to a 14-point lead at 48-34 before MCLA made a run to try and get back into the game with just 10:30 left to play. The Trailblazers got within seven points at 48-41 using a 7-0 run in which Lucy Tremblay and Danielle Beauchamp each had three points.
 
The Vikings then put the game out of reach using a 13-4 spurt to extend out to an insurmountable 61-45 advantage with just five minutes left.
 
MCLA was paced by Tremblay's game-high 19 points. She was 7-16 from the floor and grabbed five rebounds. Beauchamp was the only other Trailblazer in double figures finishing with 14 points off the bench. Kelsey Ouimet grabbed a game-high nine rebounds for MCLA.
 
MCLA was hampered by 27 turnovers.
 
The Trailblazers will look to rebound Saturday when they host Worcester State at 3 p.m.
