The second game of the 8th grade tournament would pit the Chavies Lady Cardinals against the Willard Lady Warhawks. This would prove to be one of the most exciting games of the tournament as it took an overtime period to settle the matter.

The Lady Cardinals got the better of Willard in the first period as they took the 7-2 lead. Willard would not go away easily as they came flying back to tighten the game at 14-12 at the half (Chavies advantage).

Chavies would open a small lead in the third period, and went to the final six minutes with the 25-19 advantage. Willard needed to make up six points in the fourth quarter, and that is exactly what they did, forcing an overtime. In the extra frame, Chavies was able to gain the advantage, and moved on in the tournament 44-42.

Chavies (44) Gross 19, Estes 4, Gamble 2, Pollard 13 and Eldridge 6.
