Brandi James (Glenolden, Pa./Interboro) scored six of Brandywine's 10 first quarter points, but the Lions trailed the Pride 16-10 through 10 minutes. Widener doubled its lead by halftime as the Pride netted nine of the final 12 points during the stanza to make the score 31-19.
An 11-2 run to open the second half pushed Brandywine's deficit to 21 points and the Lions could not recover after connecting on just seven field goal attempts during the final 20 minutes.
