Catawba picked up goals in the first minute of the second half from Juliana Conte (Hampton, Ontario, CANADA) and Meredith Jones (Barnesville, MD/St. John's Catholic HS) to go on top 5-4. Bondurant and Brianna Hoffman were able to return the lead to Converse with 24 minutes left.
Conte pulled the Lady Indians even at 7-7 at the 22:20 mark, but the Valkyries pulled away in the final 15 minutes. Hoffman and Sam Green scored about a minute apart to give Converse a 9-7 edge with 13:51 remaining and Chelsea Worrell made it 10-7 with 11:04 remaining.
Ebony Mills (Harrison, ME/Oxford Hills HS/Mount Ida) cut it to 10-8, but Bondurant scored back-to-back to up the margin to 12-8 with four minutes left.
