FITCHBURG, Mass. — Fitchburg State Falcons defeated the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts Trailblazers, 71-63, Tuesday evening.

With the win, the Falcons improve to 9-12 overall and 3-7 in conference play.  MCLA drops to 8-16 overall, including an 0-11 mark in the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference.
 
Lucy Tremblay scored 20 points to lead MCLA. Kaitlyn Chenevert was the only other Trailblazer in double figures, finishing with 12 points.
 
For the Falcons, Amy Fahey led with a game-high 21 points and Kelsey Johnston chipped in with 12 points.
 
The Falcons used an 8-2 run to close out the first half en route to a 31-25 halftime lead. The Trailblazers scored two quick buckets out of the locker room to pull within two at 31-29, but that was as close as they would get.
 
Fitchburg then outscored MCLA 9-2 over the next three minutes to push out to a 40-31 lead with 16:11 remaining. After MCLA trimmed the margin to 41-35, the Falcons used a Rebecca Fluet layup and a Fahey turnaround jumper to move out to a 10 point lead at 45-35.
 
MCLA got within four points at 60-56 after a Tremblay drive with under four minutes to play, but Fahey then canned two at the charity stripe as the Falcons led by six. Chenevert once again pulled MCLA within four at 64-60, but the Trailblazers missed three straight shots on the same possession with under two minutes to play.
 
MCLA will celebrate senior day on Saturday when they face Bridgewater State at 1 p.m. The Trailblazers will honor seniors Johanna Miner and Tremblay before the contest.
