January 30, 1993|By Katherine Dunn | Katherine Dunn,Staff Writer

Kisha Ford hit three free throws in the final eight seconds of overtime to lift No. 5 Bryn Mawr over No. 12 McDonogh, 46-43, last night at McDonogh.

Bryn Mawr (14-1, 7-0) fell behind 43-40 early in overtime but Amber Taylor hit a free throw and Ford found Julie Szymanski for a back door layup to tie the game at 43 with 20 seconds left.

The Mawrtians, who rallied from an early 13-1 deficit, got 23 points from Ford and 10 from Szymanski. It was their second win of the season over McDonogh, their top foe in the Association of Independent Schools A Division. The Mawrtians beat the Eagles, 49-41, earlier this month.

McDonogh (11-5, 6-2) rebounded from a mid-game slump in which they scored just three points in a 13:29 stretch. During that stretch, which ended with 52 seconds left in the third period, the Eagles hit one of 23 shots from the field. Still, the Eagles trailed 29-22. Layups from Sarah Hill and Sarah Manekin cut the Martians lead to 29-26 at the end of three quarters.

To open the fourth quarter, the Eagles outscored Bryn Mawr 10-0. But Ford hit a couple jumpers and Emily Hickman added a layup to cut the Eagles lead to 36-35.

Hickman, a 5-foot-11 freshman forward, scored on a put back and Ford added a free throw with six seconds left in regulation as Bryn Mawr tied the game at 38.

Sonia Chase led McDonogh with 12 points, 11 rebounds and 11 steals. Manekin and Hill each finished with 11.

Both teams hit several cold spells. Neither team shot well in the second quarter as the Mawrtians hit just 2 of 18 from the field, while the Eagles made just one of 11.

During the Eagles' opening 13-1 run, Bryn Mawr missed its first seven shots of the game. Chase sparked an 11-0 Eagles run with a three-pointer and added four more points during that run.

Chase, a 5-10 junior guard, had eight of the Eagles' 14 first-quarter points and also had four steals on her way to a triple double.
