After a close first quarter, the Lady Tigers led by just two after one quarter of play. Spalding sharp-shooter Kelly Kleffner paced SA with three 3’s in the first quarter, but the Ewing defense tightened up and shut down Kleffner to zero baskets the rest of the way. In the 2nd quarter, the Tigers opened their lead to 11 at the halftime break. Ashley Koenig poured in 14 first-half points to pace the Tigers. In the 3rd, Ewing widened their lead to 17 before cruising in the 4th quarter to the 41-point win.

“This was a good game for us as we had to play both man and zone defense and I thought we made some good adjustments after the 1st quarter," Coach Greg Appleby said. "We executed our offense pretty well to get some easy scoring opportunities. Our young kids really played well off the bench in the 4th quarter. It was good to get them some game experience.”
