MARTINSBURG, W.Va. — After overcoming a large deficit in the fourth quarter, Calvary was in position to shoot a potential game-winner before a costly turnover washed the chance away during a loss to Faith in Mason-Dixon Christian Conference basketball.

Down 10 after the first quarter, the Eagles were able to keep Faith from pulling away over the second and third quarters before entering the fourth down 33-23. After pulling to within a point at 39-38, Calvary had the ball and a play for the final shot with 10 seconds remaining when a turnover secured the win for Faith.

Amanda Deneseus scored 13 points and scored all but three of those during the second half to keep Faith out in front. Allie Romaine added nine points, all coming in the first half, and Hanna Dopson finished with eight.
