Williams Leads Hoops Against Rival Haverford

HAVERFORD, Pa. – Freshman Ashlee Williams posted eight points and six rebounds to lead the Owls on the road at rival Haverford College Tuesday night. The Fords used a 39-points first-half to down Bryn Mawr, 72-26, in Centennial Conference action.

Junior Nicolette Parmese netted the game's first bucket with a layup 24-seconds into the game. Bryn Mawr's lead, the only lead for the Yellow and White in the game, was short lived as Haverford's Victoria Sobocinski tied the game less than a minute later. On their ensuing possession, Haverford took the lead and never looked back.

Haverford's defense held the Owls scoreless for more than five minutes until junior Jackie Handy made a baseline jumper at 14:14. With ten minutes to play in the half, Haverford held a commanding 18-8 lead. Over the final ten minutes, Haverford outscored the Owls, 21-4, to take a 39-12 lead into the locker room.

The second-half started in similar fashion to the first as Parmese recorded Bryn Mawr's fist bucket of the half with 19:02 to play in the game.

The Owls were held to only two baskets, a pair of jumpers by Williams over the next nine minutes of play. During the final ten minutes of the game, Williams added another basket while freshman Hope McMahan added two jumpers and sophomore Quinn Conlan recorded a layup.

In addition to Williams' eight points and six boards, McMahan and Parmese added six points each. Freshman Liandra Curtis grabbed a team-best seven rebounds while senior Aislinn Toohey pulled down six and handed out four assists.

Bryn Mawr is back to action when they travel to Ursinus on Thursday, Nov. 29, for a 6:00 pm Centennial Conference showdown with the Bears.
