While the Highlanders played tough with much physical contact, they were ultimately outplayed by a strong, experienced team with a height advantage and a good offense. Martinez came out strong and fast in the 1st quarter, led by 8 at the half, and then advanced their lead to 15 in the 3rd quarter. While the Highlanders only made about 1/4 of their field goal attempts, they did play defense with tenacity, especially in the 4th quarter, only allowing 4 points to end the game 41 - 26. Lindsey Vaughn had an amazing 18 attempts at goal, scoring 14, 5 field goals and 4 free throws. Kerry Krohn and Clare Keating scored 4 each with multiple drives to the basket, and Angel Rael and Sydney Williams each scored 2. Maddie Eidam played strong defense with multiple defensive rebounds, steals, and a forced turnover. Lindsey Vaughn, Angel Rael, and Sarah Mooney also aggressively stole the ball multiple times. Clare Keating had 5 rebounds and 2 assists, while Angel Rael had 3 rebounds and an assist. Marley Bratman played strong with a steal, and Claire O'Connor made a great block.
