Gracen Conlee was the offensive star in the second half, scoring 12 points and connecting on two 3-pointers. West Union outscored the Lady Rebels 19-13 in the second half to secure the win.
Conlee led all scorers with 15 points.

Ingomar attempted to rally from a slow first half offensively, but fell just short at the buzzer. Ingomar was down by six points with about a minute remaining and hit a three and a layup to cut the score to 24-23. The Lady Falcons were unable to convert in the final seconds and Independence escaped with the win.
Independence led 17-7 at the half, but Ingomar went on a 16-7 tear in the second half to rally. Lauren Thompson led Ingomar with six points, Maggie Smithey and Gara Beth Self had five points apiece.
