The second quarter for both Alva and Cashion was a low-scoring contest. Cashion outscored Alva 8–5. The final score of the half was 23–21. Alva did not make a basket from the floor. All of Alva's points came from the free throw line as the team struggled to find the basket.

Alva's scoring struggles continued in the third period as the team only scored three points in the quarter. The team's points came from Hallie Durkee as she made a basket and was fouled and sent to the line for one opportunity; she completed the three-point play. Cashion outscored Alva in the third period 10–3.

As the game went into the fourth quarter, the third quarter struggles came back to haunt the Ladybugs as Cashion took the lead and did not surrender. Cashion outscored the Ladybugs 13–12 in the final period.

The Goldbugs will play their next game (Homecoming) at home Tuesday versus Woodward at 6:30 p.m.
