Kimball started cold as Foley built an 18-3 lead before the Kim- ball offense awakened. Kimball cut the Foley lead to 20-15 at half- time, and Kimball's Breane Mei- erhofer connected on a three- point basket, coming out of the half to make it 20-18. The Cubs would not get any closer, however, as the Cubs struggled to convert on the offensive end (4 of 26 on two-point field goals, and 4 of 13 on three-point field goals), while Foley slowly re-built their lead. Foley closed out a 39-29 low-scor- ing playoff victory. Kimball's scor- ing leaders were Meierhofer 10, Kenadi Mackereth five, Allie Seth four, Paiten Schreiner three, Casie Mackereth three, Madelyn O'Brien two, and Kaylee Petty two. Seth led all rebounders with 10 boards, fol- lowed by Schreiner and O'Brien with five each. Kenadi Mackereth was the assists leader-with five.
