Felician (1-5) trailed most of the second half until a Gisell Peguero layup tied the game for the first of five times at 58-all with 6:06remaining in the non-conference contest.

Bowie State led by five at 66-61 with 3:26 left before Felician’s Ashley Morris knotted the score at 66 less than a minute later.

A Peguero jumper with 1:16 left to play shifted the advantage back over to the Golden Falcons only to have Bowie State junior Denver Clyde (Glen Burnie, Md.) stick two free throws to tie the game at 68 with just over a minute left in regulation, setting up the dramatic finish.
 
Miles posted 14 points to go along with a career and game-high 16 rebounds while senior Alessandra Flores Conway and junior Alisha Burley added nine and eight points respectively for the Lady Bulldogs.
 
Felician’s Peguero led the Golden Falcons with 15 points on 7-of-9 shooting and added a game-high four assists. Jac’Quel Saunders chipped in 14 points and Keisha Jean-Louis tallied nine points in the loss.
