Knotted at 32-32 after three periods, the Eagles outscored the Prospectors 19-13 in the fourth to secure the victory.

“It was a solid game that went back and forth the whole game,” said GHS Head Coach Mindy Avila. “What lost it for us were our turnovers and not rebounding the ball (boxing out). I've been trying to instill in these boys that we are not just a 3-point team. You live and die in the 3 point game like and it did us in at the end today. It was a disappointing loss.
