The Lady Warriors pulled away in the second quarter with a 13-0 run to bring their lead to 26-7. They also put on a defensive clinic in the quarter and did not allow Bridgewater-Raritan to score a point until the 2:05 mark.

As soon as Bridgewater-Raritan scored their first point of the quarter it was immediately answered with a 3-pointer from Diamond Miller who had to leave the game after a few minutes in the second half.

"She played a couple minutes [in the second half], then you could just tell her body was shutting down," Taylor said. 

The Lady Warriors held Bridgewater-Raritan to only six points in the second quarter and finished their scoring on a solid play, Keona Schenck sent a nice bounce pass to her twin sister Kennady Schenck who hit a nice lay-up. The first half ended with the Lady Warriors up 34-13.

With the win, the Lady Warriors advance to face Gill St. Benard in the semifinal round on Saturday at 4 p.m. in Montgomery. Both teams faced each other during the regular season and the Lady Warriors came out ahead in that match up 65-40.
