Red Flash suffer first home loss of season

LORETTO – St. Francis fell for just the second time this season, losing 61-44 against St. Joseph’s.

The Red Flash (4-2, 0-0) put together a strong first half and only trailed by two at the intermission, but the Hawks (4-2, 0-0) opened the second half on a strong run and SFU could not recover. Chatilla Van Grinsven posted a huge game for St. Joseph’s with 18 points and 21 rebounds to lead all players.

The Red Flash got 11 points from Kelley Doogan and 10 points and nine rebounds from Alli Williams, but it was not enough to dodge the first SFU home loss of the season. The Flash were limited to just 20.7 percent shooting (6-for-29) in the second half and just 25.4 percent (15-for-59) for the game.
