Sacred Heart tied it at 37-37, then Angel McClain nailed a 3-pointer to put the Lady Warriors back up 40-37.

Red Lake would never lose the lead again and went on a 17-2 run, leading once by as much as 16 points, 54-38, before Sacred Heart started to come back.

Sacred Heart came to within 3-points in the last seconds of play, but Red Lake hung on to win 71-68.

Autumn Holthusen led the Warriors with 21, seventeen of her points coming in the first half, followed by Alexis Desjarlait with 18 and 10 rebounds, Angel McClain with 16 and Gericka Kingbird had 12.
