Neither team scored for the first 2:17 on Jan. 19, then Goldman's pull-up 3-pointer from the right wing began a 13-0 Lincoln run to start the game. Lincoln produced 10 points over the next 4:36. Kirk got a putback in the lane, then caught the ball going down the box and laid it in for two more. Hollie Webb hit a runner in the paint, then Kirk banked in a turnaround off the glass. Goldman cranked up another trey from the left wing before Greenland got on the board.

Greenland didn't get its third basket until Fiona Wilson's breakaway steal made the score 19-6 with 5:40 left in the first half. The Lady Pirates picked up the pace putting 11 points up for the rest of the quarter, but still couldn't stop Lincoln. The Lady Wolves notched 13 including a defense-to-offense transition. Averi Massey played pick-pocket, stealing the dribble away from the Greenland guards near mid-court and sailed in for an uncontested layup. Lincoln led 32-19 at the half. Hollie Webb and Cunningham had 3-pointers to help hold Greenland at bay in the second half.

A trio of Lady Wolves reached double figure scoring: Goldman 17, Hollie Webb 15, and Kirk 11. Rounding out the scoring were: Massey 7, Cunningham 5, Jones 4, Tania Ortiz 4.
