WESTMINSTER, Md. – McDaniel outscored Haverford 16-8 in the final quarter to record a critical 41-38 Centennial Conference (CC) women's basketball victory on Saturday.

Halle Burgess (Ashton, Md./Good Counsel) led the Green Terror (12-11, 10-8 CC) with 18 points, moving the team into control for the fifth and final playoff spot entering the final week.

Sierra Berkel paced the Fords (19-5, 15-4 CC) with 13 points and eight rebounds.

Trailing 30-25 entering the fourth quarter, Liv Storer (Wangaratta, Victoria, Australia/Galen Catholic College) hit a jumper on the opening possession to make it a three-point game.

Five straight points from Burgess gave McDaniel its first lead since early in the first quarter.

A Melanie Yeomans (Myersville, Md./South Hagerstown) three-point play stretched the Green Terror lead to five with 3:55 to play.

A Juliana Clark 3-pointer with 2:48 showing closed the deficit to two but Burgess responded with her fourth triple, connecting from the top of the arc.

Macy Goldbach answered right back with a trey before one Jasmine Smith (Baltimore, Md./Baltimore Polytechnic Institute) free throw after she was fouled driving with one second on the shot clock pushed the lead to three.

Berkel connected on two free throws with 41.7 seconds before the Fords were whistled for a handcheck at the top of the arc and Burgess drained both free throws with 14.1 seconds for the final margin.

McDaniel jumped out to a 7-2 lead in the first 2:50 of the game before Haverford netted the game's next 14 points to take a 16-7 lead just 1:53 into the second quarter.

Goldbach made it a 19-9 game with 5:18 to play before two Burgess triples and jumpers from Yeomans and Burgess tied the game at the break.

Storer and Yeomans finished with 10 points each.

The Green Terror returns to action at Gettysburg on Wednesday. Game time is 8 p.m.
