The Lady Blue Devils were down by as much as 15 but cut it to a single point before faltering in the end, while the boys were outscored 38-15 in the second half en route to a 77-41 loss.

Her layup with 10.5 seconds remaining in the third cut the Lexington advantage to 42-41. From there, however, Falkville was outscored 21-16.

For Falkville, Jada Jones scored 17 points, Whitney Eaves had seven, while Beth Vest and Katie Barnett scored five points apiece.
