Lady Lions Topped 88-68 by Frostburg


2/17/2014 — FROSTBURG, Md. - A 51-point first half propelled Frostburg State University past the Penn State Altoona women's basketball team 88-68 on Monday evening in a non-conference matchup.

Moira Corrigan (Havertown, PA/Haverford) posted her 10th double-double of the season, scoring 13 points to go along with 12 rebounds. Corrigan now needs just two rebounds to set a new school single season record.

Madison Mossellem (Harrison City, PA/Penn Trafford) led Penn State Altoona in scoring with 16 points. She also grabbed five rebounds, tallied three assists, and blocked three shots.

Kylie O'Toole (Pittsburgh, PA/Penn Trafford) added 10 points and two blocks off of the bench for the Lady Lions.

Penn State Altoona worked its way to an 11-6 lead just under five minutes into the game. Mossellem's three-point play at 17:16 broke a 4-4 tie, and layups by her and Corrigan made it a five-point game by 15:13.

Frostburg, the former Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference rival of the Lady Lions, came back to tie the game at 11 on Simone Wise's three-pointer at 13:48.

O'Toole connected from three-point range 41 seconds later to put Penn State Altoona back up by three, and Mossellem's jumper at 11:46 kept her squad's lead at three.

But the home team's offense caught fire, and the Lady Bobcats proceeded to outscore Penn State Altoona 38-13 through the remainder of the half. Kyler Redmond's jumper at 4:49 put the home team up 34-22, and her three-pointer at 2:56 made it 39-25. Ronje James' layup and foul shot at 2:12 extended her team's lead to 17 points, and shots by Deara Parker and Kayla Love gave Frostburg a 22-point advantage with 31 seconds left before intermission.

Frostburg went on to lead by as many as 28 points in the second half, getting a layup from Jasmine Walker at 17:47 that made it 59-31.

Penn State Altoona narrowed its deficit to 16 points by the 9:05 mark on Mossellem's layup, but the Lady Lions were unable to get any closer to tying the game.
