In the second half, Olpe held Lebo to just thirteen points as they surged to their 12th straight win on the year. Olpe was led in scoring by seniors Maya Bishop with 11 points and Hattie Fisher with 10.

In the second half, Lebo would come as close as six points to tie the game, but could never overcome the deficit as the Eagles would stretch the lead back out to double digits in the fourth keeping their unbeaten streak alive. Olpe had two players end the night in double figures and were led by senior Jordan Barnard with 15. Junior Derek Hoelting added 12.
