Down 10-3, Yeshiva answered with a 7-3 run, capped off by a layup from freshman forward Celia Cohen, off a feed from Alge, to narrow the Dolphins' (11-9, 9-7 Skyline) lead to 13-10. Mount Saint Vincent answers with 10 unanswered points from the end of the opening quarter into the early stages of the second, to take a commanding 23-10 lead.
