The Demons played well in the first quarter leading 14-5 going into the second. Towards the end of the first half, Mount Pleasant put together a little run from make it a 25-21 game with Washington up at the half. In the second half the Demons would get it out to a ten point lead at one point but the Panthers would fight to make it a two point game going into the fourth. It was tied with around two and a half to go when the Demons got two consecutive threes from Lauren Vittetoe and Cassie Holland picked off a pass headed for the post which the Demons converted into a basket. All of sudden the Demons had an eight point lead. The Panthers were forced to foul but the Demons went 12-12 from the free throw line in the fourth quarter to make the game look a little more lopsided than it was with Washington winning 61-47. Sydney Greiner had 20 points and went 8 for 8 from the charity stripe. Lauren Vittetoe had 16 hitting four threes, all of her points were from the field.
