Eventually Missouri Baptist came back and took a 53-52 lead with just over one minute remaining in regulation, but Senior Forward Gabi Morales hit a free-throw to tie the game up at 53-53 with 53-seconds left in the second half. Neither team could hit a game-winning shot in regulation, sending the game into overtime.

In the overtime period Missouri Baptist started with a 7-0 run before the Lady Vikings could hit their first shot. From there Missouri Baptist took control of the game, and held off the Lady Vikings in the 73-57 defeat for MVC.
