Lady Lions Naomi Oliva and Aly Daily led the team in steals with three each. Shelly Castro led the Lady Lions in rebounds with four. Dani Beltran grabbed three rebounds and forced turnovers with a steal and three deflections. She also scored four points.
The Lady Rangers continued to put points on the board and led 31-15 after the third quarter.

Daily scored seven points, adding to her game-high 12 points. Beltran and Oliva scored two and one respectively, while Camille Burrhus-Clay added four and Jenee Burrhus-Clay picked up two. Ceci Smith, Janie Juarez and Leandra Garcia rotated in at the guard position.
