After falling behind by 10 points early on and trailing by 16 at the ten minute mark, the Owls started to mount a comeback as they pulled within seven, 26-19, with 5:38 left. However, that would be the closest the Owls got to their archrivals the remainder of the game.

The Fords eventually pushed their lead to 27, 60-33 with 5:56. The Owls pulled within 22, 62-40 with 4:27 to play before being held without a basket the rest of the game.
In the second-half, Parmese led the Owls with seven points while Curtis added six points.
Haverford was led by Nina Voith with 14 points. Rachel Baskin and Jacquelyne Pizzuto added 10 points each.
