Niehoff’s rebound bucket had the Lady Lions on top 10-6 after one quarter.

Greenfield’s Jones opened the second half with a bucket, but the Lady Lions answered with a 7-0 run. Niehoff had five points in the run. A 3-pointer by Oldham stopped the run, but Niehoff scored again on the inside to put the lead at 27-20.

With the lead at five, Cook drained a pair from the line and Mikayla Dougherty hit from behind the arc to extend the lead to 10 points. After five straight points by the Lady Cougars, Niehoff’s two free throws sent the game to the fourth with Rushville leading 34-27.
