We pick things up at the end of the 1st quarter where Neuqua’s Jada Devine grabs the loose ball and scores the hoop and the harm! Devine scores all 9 of Neuqua’s first quarter points. They lead 9-7 after one.
Start of the second quarter now and Metea opens this one strong. Freshman point guard Khaliah Reid hits the nice floater in the lane – it’s a 9-9 ball game.
Metea is starting to get going offensively – Jada Samuels finds a comfy spot on the wing and splashes in the three. Mustangs now lead 21-17.
Third quarter now, Neuqua is trying to battle back. Brooke Miller makes a great defensive play, and then takes it all the way to the house and gets an and-one opportunity. Neuqua trails by 13, 33-20.
Moving ahead to the fourth, the Wildcats stille trying to claw back. And this will help – Ellie Wisner finds Jessica Sun for the triple – NV down just 10 with three minutes ot play.
