The Ladies took to the floor next and what a game they gave the crowd at Tiger Gym keeping the game close the entire time. Raton had the lead when the first quarter buzzer sounded but by halftime and after a couple of lead changes the Lady Rams took the 2-point lead to the locker room.

Second half action saw the Lady Rams put it together and extend their lead out scoring Raton by five. The fourth quarter kept it pretty even as both teams played a defensive game that held the score to only 10 points for each team.
