The second half the team came out very focused and full of energy to eventually tie the game with just under 2 minuets left in the second half. Amanda Kudick was very instrumental in leading the charge with outstanding defense and her drives to the hoop. A last minute shot by the Lady Lakers fell just short to take the lead.
