The Mustangs held the Beaver lead to around 20 points for the first part of the second period until senior Lindsey Delscamp (Germantown/Madison) hit a pair of three pointers at the 8:00 mark to extend the lead to 62-36. The rest of the contest went heavily in the Beaver's favor as they would finish the game 75-49.
