HOW IT HAPPENED

  • A pair of threes by Jada Welbon and Lauren Fortescue helped Salisbury counter with an 8-4 run of its own that brought the score to within two at 14-12, but two more three-pointers from the Cougars in the final minutes of the frame spurred a 6-4 run that put Misericordia ahead after one quarter, 20-16.
  • The Cougars continued to find success offensively in the second quarter to jump out to a 31-22 lead with an 11-6 run in the first five minutes. A pair of Emily Dilger layups were followed with an Amber Onyekwere three-pointer in the following three minutes of play helped pull the Sea Gulls to within four at 33-29.
  • The Cougars tallied five of the final seven points of the second quarter to take a 38-31 lead into halftime.

  • An Elizabeth Fasti three-pointer capped off a 13-8 run for the Cougars over the final five minutes to give Misericordia a 65-49 lead heading into the fourth quarter.
  • Salisbury stole the momentum to begin the fourth quarter with a quick 13-7 featuring three-pointers from Kylie Webb and Kolby Brown to help pull the team back within 10 at 72-62 with just over five minutes to play.
