BRADFORD, Pa. -- The University of Pittsburgh at Bradford women's basketball team was unable to rally back in the fourth quarter as Mount Aloysius picked up a 57-38 Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference win at the KOA Arena Saturday.

With the decision, Pitt-Bradford drops to 4-2 in conference play and 5-6 overall while Mount Aloysius jumps to 3-4 in AMCC action and 3-11 overall.

Pitt-Bradford held control in after the first quarter but single-digit score totals in the second and third quarters put the Mounties ahead by an insurmountable amount in the fourth.

The Panthers never gave up, though.

Down 51-23 at the start of the fourth, the Panthers held the Mounties to 2-11 shooting and caused nine turnovers in the fourth to battle back.

Though they outscored the Mounties 15-6 in the fourth, the deficit proved too much and Mount Aloysius held on for the win.

Jennifer Isenberg led the team with 13 points -- scoring five in the fourth quarter. She was a rebound shy of a double-double.

Shaelyn Snipes contributed 11 points as well.

Mount Aloysius made seven three-pointers and shot 37 percent overall.

The Panthers were held to 28.3 percent, shooting 15-53.

Up next, Pitt-Bradford will head to first-place Hilbert for an AMCC contest Wednesday. Tipoff is set for 6 p.m.
