Fourth Quarter Run Falls Short as Fords Hold On

(Carlisle, Pa.) – The Haverford College women's basketball team had a big second quarter and held off a late run by Dickinson to claim a 64-52 decision at the Kline Center on Tuesday night.

The Fords opened the game with an 8-0 run, but the Red Devils would settle in and cut the deficit to 13-10 before Julianna Clark knocked down a three-pointer and hit a pair of free throws to put Haverford up. 18-10, at the end of the first quarter.

Macy Goldbach hit a pair of three-pointers to start the second and that would spark the Fords to a 39-16 advantage at halftime.

The Red Devils came out of the break and hit a trio of three-pointers as they looked to keep pace with the Fords in the third quarter. Dickinson made a strong run in the fourth, cutting the final deficit to 12 as junior Hannah Heiring (Wayzata, Minn./Wayzata) sank three triples of her own in the final period.

First-year Kate Deutsch (Marlton, N.J./Camden Catholic) had a strong performance as well, netting 14 points and controlling seven rebounds. She added five blocked shots, two assists and a steal while going 4-for-5 from the free throw line.

Heiring reached double-figures with 11 points, going 3-for-5 from beyond the arc. Claudia Maira (Clinton, N.J./North Hunterdon) tallied seven points, three rebounds and two assists while Katie Weaver (Malvern, Pa./Episcopal Academy) had six points and five rebounds.

The Red Devils slip to 5-7 overall and 2-5 in the Centennial Conference. They are on the road on Thursday, traveling to Swarthmore College for a 6:00 pm tip-off.
