The Cats started off strong and steady, as they closed the first quarter tied at 13, and led by four at at the half, 32-28.  The second half, however, told a different story, as the Cats struggled, being outscored 27-15 in the third and 23-16 in the final quarter.  Cumberlands shot 46.8% overall to the Bobcats' 38.7%. The three-point shot was key in the game's outcome, as the Patriots drained 11 of their 22 three-pointers, while the Lady Cats hit only 2 of 12. 

Senior Brandy Uchtman led C of O in scoring with 20 points, followed by Hannah Wisdom with 15.  Kelsie Cleeton led the team in rebounds (9) and Shelby Roberts in assists (4).
