The Rams competed in the 1st and trailed by just three at the end of the period, 14-11. Burton scored twice, Schuler scored twice and made a free throw, Schuler scored twice and Carson once. Quehl scored at will, six times.

The pace picked up in the 2nd with 36 points scored in the period. St. T edged Shelby 19-17. Schuler scored three times from the floor and was 2-of-3 at the line. Carson scored twice and Burton and Madison Boone scored once, each.

Olivia Williamson was 1-of-2 at the stripe. Quehl scored three more times for 18 points in the first half. Cooper scored three times and St. T led by five at the break, 33-28.

Shelbyville scored another 17 points in the 3rd, but again, St. T bested them, scoring 21.

Carson picked up her scoring, with three buckets and 1-of-2 at the line. Boone scored three times and Burton and Schuler once, each.

Quehl scored just six points, while Fyke had a pair of threes and a two. St. T had stretched their lead to nine points heading into crunch time, 54-45.
