In the fourth quarter some nice passing between guards Camilla McDaniel and Eloise Pearsall and Finola Kiter and Poses yielded lay-ups. Emily Tomann and Amelia Kupper guarded the paint, with help from Elaine Llewellyn and Maggie Gordineer, and Clara Tripp. McDaniel had six points, and Poses and Pearsall each had four points.

On Dec. 3 the Knights faced a tough team from St. Patrick’s, who jumped to a 12-2 lead. Loretto battled back and cut the lead to 16-12, but in the fourth quarter St. Pat’s full-court press and swarming zone proved too much. Poses had six points, McDaniel and Gordineer each had four.
