The fourth quarter started to show promise for Catty, but Salisbury wasn’t finished and still had some momentum up their sleeve. Treyce Weber got fouled for a three and went to the line where he made two out of three. That gave the Roughs a one point lead. Moments later, Patrick Foley made a three, which gave Salisbury the lead. The Roughs tried to fight back but fell short. Salisbury won 52-48.
