Intersection of properties?

Consider the rule that if X desires Y and X can_do Y, then X does Y.
In Prolog, this would be:

does(X, Y) :- desires(X, Y), can_do(X, Y).

This is really defining 'does' as the intersection of the properties 'desires' and 'can_do'.
I couldn't find something like this in the OWL use cases.  Is there a way to do this in OWL2?

Thanks for any help,
