GALLOWAY, N.J. – Delaware Valley College women's basketball used a 20 point fourth quarter Sunday afternoon to outlast Morrisville State College in the consolation round of the Stockton University Tip-Off Tournament held in Galloway, New Jersey.

The loss drops Morrisville State to 1-2 early on in the season, as they return to the court Tuesday, traveling to SUNY Geneseo for a 7 p.m. match up with the Knights.

A pair of seniors led the way for the Mustangs in the loss, as three total Morrisville State players notched double figures.

Haley Kilmartin (Fort Plain, N.Y.) posted a team high 18 points, adding three steals and five rebounds, while center Marissa Woodard (Unadilla, N.Y.) added a double-double effort with 16 points and a career high 18 rebounds, five on the offensive glass, hitting perfect from the free throw line as she converted all four attempts.

Tori Rockefeller (Bloomville, N.Y.) added 15 to close out the Mustang scoring leaderboard.

Point guard Alexis Campbell (Buffalo, N.Y.) dished out seven assists while adding nine points in 35 minutes of action.

Morrisville State held a slim one-point lead at the half, before the Aggies jumped out in front by as many as five late in the third quarter with back-to-back buckets. A three by Kilmartin closed the gap to one with 19 seconds remaining in the quarter, sending it into the final frame with a 50-49 DelVal lead.

Midway through the final quarter, the Aggies used a 11-2 run to claim an eight point advantage with 6:08 to go, and extended that to as many as 11 with 1:49 remaining on the clock, a deficit that proved too much for Morrisville State to overcome as they dropped the non-conference decision.

Woodard was selected to the All-Tournament Team for her efforts across tournament play.
