VS. FELICIAN
Dowling led through most of the opening frame, but timely free throws and a jump shot from Eliana Scanlon gave the Golden Falcons a slight 25-23 lead going into the break.  A 9-0 Felician run breaking a 39-39 tie midway through the half put the Golden Falcons ahead where they would stay from the remainder of the game a cruise to a 70-57 win.
