The Dickinson Red Devils women’s basketball team continued their season last week by splitting a pair of Centennial Conference matchups; losing at home to McDaniel on Wednesday, Feb. 12, and winning at Bryn Mawr Saturday, Feb. 15.

The game against McDaniel was one of the most closely contested battles to be seen at the Kline Center this season. In the first half, the Red Devils went shot for shot with the Green Terror, with multiple lead changes and swings of momentum.

McDaniel took a slight 26-24 lead into halftime, and came out firing on all cylinders to begin the second half of play. At one point, the Green Terror led by a 13-point margin, but the Devils refused to fold in the face of adversity. A comeback was led by the Devils, who came within seven points of tying the game after a deep Sam Kennedy ’16 three-point shot.

Unfortunately, the comeback would not be completed, and the Devils fell in the final minute as McDaniel made five of six free throws to seal the game. Liz Schultz ‘15 led the Devils in scoring with 13 points on the night.

After losing 67-55 against the Green Terror, the Devils took to the road, looking for a firm response against Bryn Mawr. They found an easy win in the City of Brotherly Love, defeating the Owls by a score of 85-24.

After a slow minute and a half of play, the Devils scored first by means of a Mary Martin ’17 free throw. The Devils would tack on 16 more points before the Owls could retaliate, and that display of force set the tone for the remainder of the game. The Devils had five different players score in double figures on the afternoon, led once again by Schultz, who scored 16 points during the contest.

After both contests, Sam Kennedy ’16 had some encouraging words on behalf of her teammates. “This last week we played a good first half against McDaniel, but lost concentration at times in the second half, which was hard to rebound from.” Against Bryn Mawr, however, she said “our goal was to get better and work on the details of both our offense and our defense. The game was fun to play because we played well together. Moving into the last week of the season, we have to stay mentally focused for all 40 minutes and continue to improve from game to game.”

Entering the final week of their season, the Red Devils are continuing to work hard in practice and have that translate over into their final two games. They travel to Muhlenberg to take on the Mules on Tuesday, February 18. In their final regular season game, the Devils will play host to the Franklin and Marshall Diplomats in what will be sure to be an intense rivalry game. In their final week of the season, the young Red Devils are looking to end the campaign on a high note.
