Saint Rose would make a late push, getting within 67-62 with 2:37 on the clock, but six straight from the Penmen would seal the win ... junior Kylie Lorenzen (Holliston, Mass.) turned in a monster performance, posting 26 points (11-19 FG, 4-7 FT), including 17 after halftime, and 16 rebounds, which matched her career high ... senior Jennifer Shelp (Apalachin, N.Y.) recorded 14 points (6-12 FG, 2-2 FT), with junior Brianna Camara (Fall River, Mass.) adding 11 points (3-9 FG, 1-2 3-FG, 4-6 FT) and seven rebounds ... a win would put the Penmen into the semifinal round for the first time ever.
