THE SKINNY STORY
Haverford scored the final seven points of the second quarter to open up a nine-point lead en route to a 63-44 win over McDaniel.

THE LEADERS
Meggie Burgess (Olney, Md./Good Counsel) paced the Green Terror with eight points and six rebounds.
Liv Storer (Wangaratta, Victoria, Australia/Galen Catholic College) was the only McDaniel player in double figures with 14 points, adding five rebounds, two assists and two steals.

FOR THE FOES
• Anna-Sophia Capizzi led the Fords with 24 points and six rebounds.
• Megan Furch added 20 points and six rebounds.

THE REST OF THE STORY
• An Anna Mondoro (Dumfries, Va./Homeschool) 3-pointer and Liv Storer jumped staked McDaniel to a 5-0 lead in the first 2:42 of the game. However, Megan Furch responded with a jumper and Anna-Sophia Capizzi added a triple to tie the game just 53 seconds later. The teams continued to trade baskets over the remainder of the period with Juliana Clark's 3-pointer in the final 45 seconds giving the hosts a 16-14 edge.
Josey Klingenberg (Hampstead, Md./Manchester Valley) tied the game with 8:37 to play in the second quarter before Hannah Zoll and Capizzi scored nearly three minutes apart for a 20-16 edge. Two Meggie Burgess free throws cut the deficit to two but five points from Capizzi keyed a 7-0 final 3:50 to the second quarter for a 27-18 lead at the break.
• The lead swelled to 14 in the first 69 seconds of the third quarter. McDaniel closed the margin to 37-29 on back-to-back Burgess layups before another 6-0 Fords run stretched the lead back to 14 with 2:04 remaining. An exchange of free throws in the final 1:15 of the quarter gave Haverford a 46-35 lead entering the final period.
• Behind six straight points from Furch, the Fords opened the fourth quarter on an 8-0 run to build a 54-35 advantage with 6:45 to play. Storer hit back-to-back buckets to cut the margin to 15 but that's as close as the Green Terror could get.

THE INSIDE STORY
Meggie Burgess matched her career best with eight points and established a new career high with six rebounds.
