NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Wentworth's Maddy Foster scored 30 points and pulled down nine boards to lead the Leopards past the MCLA Trailblazers, 60-48 this evening in non-conference women's basketball action.
Foster went 13-for-19 from the floor and added a pair of steals in the win. Teammate Abriana Busbey added 10 points and a game best 13 rebounds for Wentworth.
After one quarter the game was tied at 10-10. Wentworth (1-4) outscored MCLA 8-0 to start the second quarter to take an 18-10 lead. The lead grew to 11 points at halftime.
Out of the locker room the Leopards quickly extended the margin to 15 points at 32-17 but MCLA (0-7) did not go quietly. The Trailblazers used an 11-2 run fueled by Shannon Carney and Emily Burke to pull within six at 34-28 midway through the third quarter.
Another Carney jumper just two minutes later got the hosts within five at 37-32 but Wentworth's Gabby Amoddio stemmed the tide with a bucket. Eventually Wentworth took a 43-35 into the final period.
Next up for MCLA is a home date with Mount Holyoke on Saturday at noon.
