     In the second half, the Lady Indians were held to 11 points, scoring six in the third quarter and five in the fourth. The Lady Falcons scored 12 points in the third frame and eight in the final eight minutes.

     HHS was led by A.J. Sanders with eight points. The junior post player was 4 of 6 from the free-throw line and made two baskets from the floor. Sanders also gained six offensive rebounds.
