The St. Mary’s girls basketball team played a strong three quarters Wednesday night.

Unfortunately for the Trojans, a poor fourth quarter cost them a chance to knock off Crossroads Conference leader Sherwood.

Trailing just 24-23 at halftime, the Trojans were outscored 11-4 in the final quarter in a 51-36 loss.

“We played a really good first three quarters – and definitely played well in the first half,” Trojans coach Krista Daniels said. “But we let it slip away in the fourth. We need to figure out how to play 32 minutes. We got tired at the end.”

The loss overshadowed a strong game by JoLynn Glorioso, who fired in 21 points to lead St. Mary’s (10-11, 4-5 Crossroads) against Sherwood, which is undefeated in conference play.

“JoLynn had a nice game,” Daniels said.

Sarah Dortch added eight points for St. Mary’s.

Sherwood’s Kristen Floyd matched Glorioso’s game-high total of 21 points.

Sherwood also won the junior varsity game, 52-26.

RAYTOWN 56, ST. TERESA’S ACADEMY 55 (OT): Tameka O’Neal sank a 3-pointer with five seconds left in overtime to lift Raytown into the championship of the Class 5 District 13 championship.

“She came off a screen, we got her the ball and she hit a huge shot,” Raytown coach Jan Handley said of O’Neal, who finished with a team-high 18 points. “We didn’t play very well and probably didn’t deserve to win, but got into a man press and hit some big shots and free throws to get back in it. We couldn’t have done it without our bench. It’s just win and advance at this point.”

Kelsey Barrett added 17 points and Atoya Harris had 10 for Raytown (15-8), which meets rival Raytown South in the championship at 6 p.m. Friday at Rockhurst High School. Raytown South advanced with a 67-63 upset of Belton behind Tanchell Hollingsworth’s 29 points.
