Cisco ended the quarter on a 6-0 run to cut the lead to three after the first period, 15-12.

McLennan scored 12 points, including five points from Mele Kailahi, in those five minutes to extend the lead to 13, 27-14. The Highlassies led by 10, 37-27, with 22 seconds to go. Judith Moya nailed a 3-pointer at the buzzer to put McLennan up by 13 at the break, 40-27.
 
McLennan pushed the lead further starting the third, opening with back-to-back 3-pointers from Nephew as part of an 8-0 run. The Highlassies continued to pour in the points in the quarter, holding Cisco to 12 points in the frame as they extended the lead to 24, 63-39. A 2-0 run to open the fourth gave McLennan its largest lead at 67-39 and with the game comfortable in hand, the Highlassies cruised the remainder of the way to the lopsided win.
