NEWBURGH – Mount Saint Mary College held Farmingdale State College without a field goal for more than seven minutes in the second half and gradually pulled away for a 53-43 victory in Skyline Conference action on Saturday. The Knights wrap up the regular season at 17-8 overall (13-1 Skyline) and will serve as the top seed in next week’s conference tournament.

Trailing by five at the 13:39 mark, Mount sophomore Lauren Romao drained back-to-back three-pointers to give the Knights a one-point edge. Farmingdale tied the game with one-of-two at the line, but wouldn’t score again until the six-minute mark. During that time, Mount Saint Mary pieced together an 8-0 run to take a 44-36 lead. Farmingdale wouldn’t threaten down the stretch and the Knights settled for the 10-point win.

Perrone led the Knights with 17 points on 8-of-15 from the field. Sophomore Natalie Candarelli added 12 points, while Romao added 10 points. Sophomore Rottisha Lewis grabbed a game-high 11 rebounds.

For Farmingdale, junior Nicky Young had a game-high 18 points.
