PVHS managed to tie the game again at 56-56 with 2:08 left in regulation, before the Indians took a 58-56 lead with 1:43 left in the fourth.

Just nine seconds later though, the game was tied again at 58-58.

There was just too much speed and pressure defense to go around in the Lady Indians game against Millwood.

The Lady Falcons used plenty of both to gain a decisive victory, sending Plainview to the consolation bracket.

Early on though, the Lady Indians gave Millwood all it could handle as it was an 8-6 game with 4:06 left in the first quarter.

Millwood managed to lead 14-9 at the end of the frame, before the Lady Indians got to within three at 15-12 with 6:35 left before halftime.

Unfortunately for Plainview, the shots began to stop falling, and the Lady Falcons pressure defense finally started to take over.

Plainview was down 30-21 at the halftime break, before managing just six points in the third quarter and five in the fourth quarter.

The Lady Indians were led by Amiya Howard, Peyton Jones and Anna Simmons who all scored six  points in the game against the Lady Falcons.
