Ventura out-hustled and out-played the Raiders in the first half. At one point, the Lady Vikes went on a 14-0 run. Ventura took a 29-12 lead into halftime.
The Lady Vikes capitalized on easy steals and lay-ups to move the lead to 43-20 by the end of the third quarter. The team maintained the momentum on their way to an easy 57-23 victory.

Emily Spilman led the scoring onslaught with 17 points. She was followed closely by Emily Mathews with 15 points. Rounding out the scoring was Shelby Rayhons with nine, Morgan Ames had four, Courtney Younge chipped in three and Sydney Younge had two points.
