Quarter number two saw Goodrich accumulate 14 points and Imlay City manage seven, leaving the former with a 25-11 lead at the halftime break.

When the action resumed, Imlay City fought back with a 9-6 third quarter edge. That trimmed their deficit to 31-20 with 24 minutes gone.

The opening 55 seconds of quarter four would see Imlay City inch even closer. It was there the Spartans ran off four straight points, making it a 31-24 ballgame with 7:05 remaining.

Goodrich then responded with a 13-6 run over the next seven minutes-plus, good for a 44-30 triumph at night's end.

For Imlay City, Mary Lengemann led the way with 11 points. Lengemann drained a triple along the way.

Imlay City had four other players reach the scoring column that evening. Their ranks consisted of Ana Lengemann (five points, including a trifecta), Emma Waatti and Kayla Rossen (five each) along with Kayla Louwsma (four).
