Elizabeth Seton extended its losing streak to six games after falling to St. Mary’s Ryken, 52-44.
Both teams were going at it to start the game. They were scoring back and forth and keeping the game close. The Roadrunners started the second quarter on an 8-0 run and kept the Knights from scoreless in the first four minutes.
Despite having its top scorer Raven Fox out for the game and senior point guard Nani Carver struggling to get the ball to go into the basket, Seton was up by two going into halftime.
When the second half started, Seton looked like they were going to end its awful losing streak. But Ryken didn’t let that happen. The Knights outscored the Roadrunners 15-9 in the third quarter, which was the difference maker. Ryken was lead by forward Deja Ford, who finished the game with 21 points.
Seton tried to turn things around in the final minutes of the fourth quarter, but costly fouls and turnovers ruined any chance for a comeback.
The Roadrunners now 1-6 and 0-3 Washington Catholic Athletic Conference. It’s urgent for Seton to its act together quickly before things get out of hand.
