Chelan and Life Christian had an almost identical field goal percentage, but the difference in the game was rebounding and turnovers. Chelan out-rebounded Life Christian 39-31, with the Lady Goats able to grab 18 offensive rebounds. Chelan forced 28 turnovers, 12 of those being steals by the Lady Goats.
Senior Abby Phelps made her return to the Lady Goats in a big way, recording a double-double with 14 points and 13 rebounds. She also had four assists and four steals.

Chelan came out in the second half with some energy to try and get back in the game. Chelan outscored Lakeside 9-5 in the third quarter. But Lakeside was too much for Chelan in the fourth quarter as Lakeside was able to hang on for the win and win the tournament.
