]Newport tried a comeback in the third quarter and outscored Fall Mountain 15 – 10 but could get no closer than 19 points in the fourth and lost 63 – 36 and finished the season with a record of 11 – 8.
Fall Mountain basketball player Brooke Aumand (#33) was high scorer in the game with 17 points. Stephanie Carl (#23) scored 10 points for Newport.
