Last Time We Met GC: Gettysburg’s first-half defense set the pace for the game as the Bullets garnered their second win, 71-43, over Franklin & Marshall.
Despite starting off with a 6-2 lead less than four minutes into action, F&M didn’t score a bucket for over four minutes as Gettysburg went on a 6-0 run to take the lead. The Diplomats fought back to bring the score within two half way through the period, but suffered another scoring drought, going the next seven minutes without a point.
Gettysburg used a solid defensive effort, forcing 13 Diplomat turnovers. The Bullets also accumulated six steals and five blocks in the first half. Courtney Fields scored 14 of her game-high 29 points for the Bullets in the first half, leading Gettysburg to a 30-13 advantage going into the break.
The Diplomats tried to chip away at Gettysburg’s lead throughout the entire second half. The Bullets held a 30-point advantage with seven minutes remaining in the contest, and went up by 33 soon after. Megan Pauley scored seven points in the final two minutes of the contest to help F&M more than double its first-half point total.
Last Time We Met HC: Dominique Meeks’ layup with 18 seconds remaining proved to be the difference as Haverford defeated Franklin & Marshall 54-52.
The Diplomats erased an early eight-point deficit in the second to tie the game at 39 on an Alexa Barbush layup. Five ties, and two lead changes, ensued over the final 12 minutes of the game. Amy Chabitnoy’s layup at 2:56 resulted in the fifth and final tie with the score knotted at 52.
Three turnovers, and three missed shots, by F&M in the final three minutes set up Meeks’ game-winning shot. The Diplomats had one more chance when Beth Holt collected a missed free throw by Meeks but Calla Miller took the ball away from Holt to secure the win.
