Goose call

CHESTERTOWN — That’s Washington College President Mike Sosulski with arms raised, exuberantly cheering on his team Tuesday night in the opening round of the Centennial Conference women’s basketball tournament.

We captured the casually dressed Sosulski, seated next to Provost and Dean Kiho Kim in suit and tie, and other Goose Nation fans responding as host Washington completed a flurry of seven unanswered points to level the score at 30 on an Emma Robinson layup 23 seconds into the final frame.

Ursinus scored the next eight points to quash Washington’s comeback bid, regaining the lead for good on a pair of free throws with 8 minutes, 48 seconds remaining.

Ursinus (15-11) would go on to lead by as many as 10 points in the fourth quarter on the way to a 50-40 victory.

The Bears were led by senior Natalie Mehl’s game high of 17 points and junior Chinwe Irondi’s game high of 13 rebounds. Irondi also contributed 12 points for her 11th double-double of the season.

Ursinus travels to top-seeded and No. 12-ranked Johns Hopkins (23-2) for a conference semifinal on Friday.

Washington’s women end their season at 14-12.

Playing in her final game for the Shore ladies, senior Serena Pluta put up 12 points and 12 rebounds for her sixth double-double in the last 10 games.

In the other first-round game Tuesday night, Feb. 20, Dickinson at home held off Swarthmore, 46-42.

Dickinson (16-5) will travel to No. 23-ranked Gettysburg (22-3), the tournament’s second seed, for Friday’s other semifinal game.
