Saturday the Hawks fell behind early and couldn’t recover from a 20-37 halftime deficit against the Frostburg State Bobcats (17-6, 13-4). The Bobcats shot 44.4% from the field and forced the Hawks into some costly turnovers over the course of the afternoon. Krystin Hargrove and Caryn Wright combined for 31 points to lead the third place Bobcats who held a slight 38-36 advantage on the boards.
