The Mount fell into a scoreless drought for a four minute span in the waning minutes of the first and the Dolphins creeped back to within eight, 27-19.

College of Staten Island senior Olivia Tierno converted a lay up at the 17:06 mark to cap a 5-0 run and cut the Knights’ lead to three, 27-24. Mount junior Amanda Smith and Metzger responded with back to back three pointers to move the Knights ahead by nine.
