Lady Lions Sink to 1-3 With Loss to St. Bonaventure

The Lady Lions fell to 1-3 after falling in a back-and-forth game against St. Bonaventure on Tuesday night, 56-54.

Sierra Moore led Penn State in scoring with 15 points, tying her previous career-high. Lindsey Spann added another 13 points and five assists in the last-second loss.

Spann dropped in two consecutive free throws to tie the game at 54 with a minute to go before Nyla Rueter converted the game-winning layup for the Bonnies with just two seconds to spare.

Rueter led the Bonnies with 13 points and converted three for seven from beyond the arc. Katie Healy recorded 10 defensive rebounds on her way to a double-double. Healy’s 11 total rebounds on the night contributed to the Bonnies’ 41 total boards, compared to the Lady Lions’ 34.

Penn State’s Tori Waldner recorded three blocks during the game and now sits at 99 in her career. She trails former teammate Talia East by three career blocks.

The game saw nine lead changes and six ties. Penn State led for 31 minutes throughout the 40-minute contest. The loss was the team’s third straight and first ever against the Bonnies. The last time the Lady Lions lost three in a row was during the 2009 – 2010 season when the team dropped five consecutive.

Penn State will take the holiday off, but will travel to Atlanta to compete in the Georgia State Thanksgiving Tournament. The team kicks off the tournament on Friday at 2 p.m. when it squares off against Liberty.
