The Cowgirls led 4-3 at the end of the first quarter but they poured in 17 points in the second quarter to lead the Lady Hawks 21-6 at the half.
The Cowgirls then used good defense in the third quarter to shut the Lady Hawks out of the scoring column while adding eleven points to their score. Again the Cowgirls outscored the Lady Hawks 17-10 in the final eight minutes for a convincing win.
