Gainesville, FL – After a close first period, the Santa Fe College Saints (3-0) used a 44 points second half to pull away from the St. Pete College Titans and win their third straight game to start the season.

 

Tracie Sneed led Santa Fe in scoring with 14 points and SFC leading scorer Lanita Bartley had 13 points and 11 rebounds for her first double double of the season.

 

The Saints jumped out early to a 13-4 lead seven minutes into the first half, but St. Pete kept things close, tying the game at 18-18 with four minutes left.  SFC ended the half on a 10-7 run to take a 28-25 lead into the break.

 

Santa Fe opened up a double digit lead five minutes into the second half going up 41-31 with 15:41 left in the game.  The lead would build from there and Amanda Woodside capped things off with two free throws for the final margin of 72-53.

 

The Saints shot well from the free throw line for the second game in a row, going 17-of-22 (77.3%) and held the Titans to only 28.1% shooting from the field (16-of-57).
