Hali Gilbert then knocked down a three to cut the lead to 6-5 at the 5:20 mark. Rischard then laid up a floater down the lane for an 8-5 MSM lead.

Sulphur tied it at 8-all after a long three by Katie Lancaster at the 4:45 mark. MSM went back on top 10-8 after a put back by Jordan Hagood. Rischard scored again with 2:00 minutes on the clock for a 12-8 lead.

They pushed the lead to six with :35 ticks on the clock after Berry stole the ball and laid it in. The last bucket of the quarter came with :15 seconds on the clock as Bruce drove inside and laid it in for a 14-10 score after one.

Sulphur scored first in the second as Gilbert drained a three to cut the lead back to one, 14-13 with 6:55 showing on the clock.

The Lady Rockets then went on an 11-0 run over the next two and a half minutes increasing the lead to 25-13 at the three minute mark.
