Erin Piles' layup at 18:29 in the second half gave the Shorewomen a 30-29 lead before the Diplomats answered with a 10-0 run. Megan Pauley scored four points in the run while Holt, Barbush and Alison Menna each netted two points.

Holt and Barbush shared a game-high in scoring with WC's Kelly Mitchell with 16 points. Barbush went 4-of-10 from the field and 8-for-9 from the line. Holt drained three treys and added six rebounds and five assists.  Snyder pumped in nine points off the bench for F&M and Pauley grabbed a team-high 10 rebounds.

Latisha Pledger picked up a double-double for Washington with 11 points and 14 rebounds while teammate Erin Fitzgerald chipped in with 11 points.
