The Lady Tanners fell to 4-5 after they couldn't pull past a determined Swampscott squad Friday night in Peabody, despite several chances to do so.
The Big Blue was up on the Peabody girls most of the game with a narrow margin and ended the fourth quarter, 44-39.
A high point for the night, despite the loss, was Carolyn Scacchi's 11 points and 12 rebounds. Katie Brunelle led the Lady Tanners in scoring with 18.
Peabody travels to Danvers on Friday (7 p.m.) after a week break.
