Fenwick falls hard to St. Louis team
A mostly banged up Fenwick girls basketball team suffered a 78-46 loss to St. Joseph of St. Louis at the McDonald’s Shootout on Monday.
The Friars (13-5), who were without reserve Mary Devereaux (broken wrist) and starter Marek Burchette (calf injury), finished with their lowest point total on the season. Maggie Reilly led Fenwick with 15 points, all coming from behind the three-point arc. Jade Owens added 13 points, and Paige Corvino 10, but the Friars had trouble defending a much taller St. Joseph team.
