Mallory Heinle did her best Thursday night to keep Class A No. 3 Saint Joseph competitive with No. 1 Vincentian.

But in the end, the Royals had too many weapons.

Brenna Wise had 21 points, Torrieonna Cash added 20 and Ally Bartoszewicz poured in 18 to lead Vincentian (4-0, 1-0) to an 83-55 victory against the host Spartans (3-1, 0-1) in Section 2.

Heinle, a senior, scored 27 points to give her exactly 1,000 points for her career. She helped keep Saint Joseph within eight points at halftime.

But Vincentian outscored the Spartans, 32-9, in the third quarter to put the game away.
