A Sommer's lay-up gave the Lady Jets a 40-39 lead, but another Klaudia Hull trey put the Lady Bees ahead 42-40 with 40 seconds left in the contest. Kenzie Martin missed the front end of two one-plus-ones within a 10 second span, but the Lady Jets were unable to convert into points.

Klaudia Hull made the second of two free throws with 4.9 seconds left for a 43-40 lead, but the Lady Jets couldn't get a tying trey.

For the game, CCHS was 15 of 45 from the floor and seven of 15 from the charity stripe with 12 turnovers, while Upperman was 15 of 42 from the field and four of eight from the free throw line with 15 turnovers.

Upperman 76, CCHS 53: Upperman placed four players in double figures — Joseph Jones (17), Cody DeVillaneuva (20), Dylan Hedgecoth (12) and Tyler McWilliams (10) — in route to the victory.

Dixson's desparation shot at the buzzer for a trey gave the Jets fans some hope at the end of the quarter; however, Upperman would outscore CCHS 25-13 in the second quarter to swell the lead to 42-30 at the break.

CCHS was 13 of 24 from the field with 11 turnovers in the first half, while Upperman was 15 of 27 from the field with four turnovers to account for the big lead.
