In the first quarter Greneway's full-court pressing helped them race in front to a 38-7 point lead, but they then began to take their collective foot off the pedal and allowed the visitors back into the game.

Both teams scored some good team baskets in the second period but Greneway were still in control and were benefiting from some impressive individual performances including Beth Cooper on her debut.
