Gainesville, FL – It took an extra period, but the Santa Fe Saints started the Mid-Florida Conference portion of their season off on the right foot on Saturday, picking up a road win over Hillsborough CC 70-61 in Tampa.
The Saints (8-6, 1-0 MFC) had the ball on the final possession with a chance to win, but the shot by Arianna Emanuel-Wright was just off the mark, sending the game to overtime.
Santa Fe was dominant in the OT period, outscoring the Hawks 11-2 over the five minute stretch, securing their eighth win of the season. Corey Staples was clutch from the free throw line, making all four of her attempts.
The Saints next game will be another MFC contest against Florida State College-Jacksonville on Wednesday, January 11 at 6:00 PM in Gainesville.
