A layup by senior Hannah Kloster grabbed the lead back, and the Blue Jays headed into halftime up 39-37.

The Blue Jays took a six point lead just a minute into the game, but the Golden Eagles fought to take the lead with 13:12 left in the game. A layup by senior Kenna Cornelson took the lead back, and the Golden Eagles were not able to take the lead again. The Golden Eagles tied the game up twice, but the Blue Jays pushed forward and clinched the lead with 0:05 on the clock with a pair of good free throws by Leigh Ann Lutz. The Blue Jays won 67-62.

The Blue Jays shot 40% from the field and 44% from beyond the ark. Lutz led the Blue Jays with 14 points, making 5 of her 6 free throws. Kloster drained 13 points and kicked in 4 assists. Talisha Washington and Laci Luff grabbed 7 rebounds apiece.
