Lady Patriots fall to St. Pete in waning seconds

OCALA--The Lady Patriots were also on the road this weekend, taking on St. Petersburg College in a Mid-Florida Conference game. This is the first year for the Titans in the MFC, making the switch from the Southern Conference.

CF led 73-72 with 18 seconds left to play, but a handful of missed shots and a foul on a SPC shooter in the waning seconds left the Lady Patriots on the losing end of the conference battle on Saturday. The Titans squeaked by CF by draining a pair of foul shots with eight seconds left on the clock to win it 74-73.

Amanda Melosky led the Patriots with 17 points, while Shambria Washington added 16 points and Fernanda Midaglia had 14.

The Lady Patriots will be back in action on Wednesday as they travel to conference rival Santa Fe College. Tip-off is set for 6 p.m. The game will be streamed live at santafesaints.com.
