Baskets were hard to come by in the first period, with Buckhorn finishing with the 8-2 lead. Lee County got the better of the scoring in the second period, but could not catch the Lady Wildcats (18-15).

The game remained close in the third period, with the Lady Wildcats managing to keep one-step ahead (39-34). Buckhorn left no doubt as to who would advance in the fourth quarter as they blew Lee County away in the frame, and went on to the 58-39 win.
