Second quarter, same as the first, with Newbury using a 12-3 scoring run to lead 31-14, their biggest margin of the half. But again, the Blazers found an answer in the late stages with a 10-1 run, including a pair of three's made by junior Samantha Lynes to ultimately cut the Newbury lead to 38-27.

 

In the third, the Blazers managed to pull within two possessions, but over the last 6:06 of the quarter, the Nighthawks outscored the Blazers 21-6, including 12 points by Sanders to lead 63-41 after three quarters.

The Blazers were unable to mount a comeback in the fourth and saw the Nighthawks pull away to secure the win.
