Being that the point spread was so large, the officials shortened the third and fourth quarters to six minutes a quarter, but that didn’t stop the Lady Wildcats’ onslaught. They continued to create turnovers against PCA and turn them into points. With 4:45 left in the game, the Lady Wildcats led 80-9. They went on to win 84-11.
