Fordham went on to score the next ten points and moved ahead, 16-13, on a three-pointer by Arielle Collins at 9:53. The Gaels tied it up on a Samantha Kopp three-point play, and from there, neither team was able to gain a significant advantage.
The Rams were in front through the early part of the second period, but would not lead again in the game after the Gaels took over on a basket by Diana Hubbard with 13:38 on the clock. A 6-0 run capped by a Kristina Ford layup put Iona ahead, 35-30 with ten minutes remaining. Fordham managed to tie the score at 40-all with 7:15 to go, then a timely three-point field goal from Tomica Bacic gave the Maroon & Gold the final lead of the night.
