WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. – A last second three was all it took for the Pennsylvania College of Technology women’s basketball team to fall 67-64 to University of Pittsburgh – Titusville. Sophomore Kierstin Steer (South Williamsport) scored 30 in the loss as the Wildcats fall to 7-8 overall.
After trailing in the second, Steer hit back to back jumpers to give Penn College a 39-38 lead with under 15 to go. The Panthers would tie it up off a free throw before Penn College regained the lead off a jumper from Steer.
Titusville took the lead again and held it until a 5-0 run, three from Abigail MacDonald (Red Lion), gave the Wildcats a 62-59 lead. MacDonald finished the game with seven and had four assists in 26 minutes of play.
After back and forth play, the game was tied with 8.5 seconds left. Penn College put on the pressure and the Panthers threw up a shot in a last ditch effort that just found the rim and went in. Time expired before Penn College could get off a shot.
As a team, Penn College shot 27 for 74 (.365) from the field and had 58 rebounds to the Panthers’ 44.
In the first half, freshman Tosha Stover (Bellefonte) opened up the game with a three to start a 5-0 run for the Wildcats. Titusville would counter with an 8-0 run to take the lead with under 13 left.
