Red Foxes pull away from Saint Peter’s for 68-49 win

JERSEY CITY, NJ - The Marist women’s basketball team had nine players score Sunday, pulling away for a 68-49 win over Saint Peter’s in a Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference (MAAC) game.

Kristina Danella and Sydney Coffey tied for the team-high in scoring as both came off the bench to score 13 points. Danella was 8-10 from the free throw line while Coffey was 4-7 from the field. Emma O’Connor was also in double figures with 12 points. Leanne Ockenden finished with nine points while registering five steals on the defensive end, tying her career-high. Casey Dulin had a team-high eight rebounds, tying her own personal best.

Marist (15-6, 10-0 MAAC) used a 10-1 run in the first half - holding Saint Peter’s (1-20, 1-9) without a field goal for 8:04 - to open a 14-5 lead.

The Peacocks pulled to within four points at 24-20, but Marist answered with a 6-0 run to close the half with a 30-20 lead.

Both teams traded baskets for the first 12 minutes of the second half until a three-pointer by Coffey at the 8:09 mark put Marist ahead 48-36 and kick-started the offense. Beynnon and O’Connor hit consecutive layups and Danella hit four more from the charity stripe down the stretch to seal the win.

Marist stays on the road next weekend with road match-ups at Iona and Siena. The Red Foxes will travel to New Rochelle to take on the Gaels at 4:30 on Thursday. Sunday’s game at Siena will start at 2 p.m.
