Cowanesque was able to gain the lead over North Penn-Liberty going into the second quarter 12-6. Cowanesque's offense battled hard to earn their twelve point lead going into halftime.
The Lady Mounties pushed hard on defense the third quarter, but the Lady Indians were still able to widen the gap between their scores even further, making it 38-18. North Penn-Liberty's offense seemed to fall in the final quarter as they just couldn't seem to put-back shots they rebounded. With only two minutes left on the clock, the Lady Indians had doubled the score 48-24. Lady Mountie Freshman Sidney Landis fired off with a three-pointer just as the game came to an end.
