The teams played to a 35-35 tie at the break, but Catawba scored the first eight points to start the second half and never looked back. NeKeithia Howard (Macon, GA/Northeast HS) started the run with a layup and two free throws in the opening two minutes. Pfeiffer pulled within 43-39 on a basket by Devona Knight (Woodbridge, VA), but Catawba answered with a 10-0 run, including a pair of three-pointers by Kisha Long (Dallas, NC/Gaston Day), to take command.
Catawba held a double-digit lead the final 16 minutes and pushed the advantage to 21 at 73-52 on a pair of free throws by Dione Eccles (Clemmons, NC/W. Forsyth HS) with 3:40 to play. Catawba shot 47% in the second half, while the Falcons managed to hit only 31.4% of its attempts.
