The Bulldogs then went on a 10-0 run to extend the lead to 24-12 behind Kate Clark, who scored nine of her 11 points in the first half. Lisa Davis finished with a team-high 18 points for Doddridge County, including eight in first half.

Amy Skinner led the Titans with 16 points, and teammates Jodi Cunningham and Denae Dobbins added 14 and 13 points, respectively.
