How it Happened
Sophia Way gave the Blue Jays an early 7-4 lead with a three-point shot at 5:12 but the Fords responded with a three of their own by Julianna Clark to tie the game at seven. With the game tied at 11, Haverford went on a 6-0 run to take a 17-11 lead after one quarter of play.
• Macy Goldbach put the home team up eight with a layup to begin the quarter, however, a jumper from Maggie Wodicka brought the Blue Jays to within six. After a Maggie Spitzer jumper at 6:15 which made the score 21-15, the Fords scored 11-straight to go up 31-15. Marissa Varnado ended the Fords' run with a jumper which was answered by a jumper from Megan Furch. Lillian Scott nailed a three as time expired in the half to send the teams into the halftime break with Haverford leading 33-20.
• A three from Scott brought Hopkins to within 11 at 36-25 but the Fords scored five straight to go up by 16. Spitzer ended the run with a jumper at 4:20 to make the score 41-27. JHU scored four-straight points to pull to within 43-31 but Katie Cook hit a layup as time expired in the third to put Haverford up 14 heading into the final quarter of play.
• After a jumper from Samantha Wetzel JHU scored four unanswered points to pull to within 12. Berkel would convert on the layup attempt, but a three from Scott got the Blue Jays back to within 11. Another Berkel layup made the score 51-38, but a Madison McGrath three got JHU to within ten points with 5:49 remaining. That's as close as Johns Hopkins would get as the Fords pulled away and took the 65-47 victory.
