Katie Stouffer would get the first bucket of the third quarter to make it 24-21 and after trading buckets it was 27-23. Looking as though the game was going to be a dog fight to the end the Lady Apaches caught fire. Sydney Mullett would hit a bucket that started a 12-0 run to open a 39-23 lead. During the run Kristin and Claire Cromer hit along with Sarah Ritter and Jaycee Parrett. Brooke Elliott stopped the run with a bucket, but the Apaches got buckets from Sarah Puckett and Jaycee Parrett to end the quarter as Wabash led 43-25.

The Wabash momentum started the fourth quarter where it left off in the third as Claire and Kristin Cromer hit back to back and were followed by Katie McCauley and Sarah Puckett hitting to finish an 8-0 run to start the quarter and increase their lead to 51-25. Katie Stouffer hit to stop the run, but the Lady Apaches would score 8 of the next 12 points for a 59-29 lead  and win the rematch 59-30.
