While the Lady Pirates started slowly, it was a strong finish that netted them the victory. "It took a quarter for us to get going. We played uptight and nervous the first quarter," noted Croy. Much of the game was a back and forth affair. "This was a game of runs. We would go on a quick run and then they would hit a 3 with an answer," detailed Croy.
