Things changed very quickly though in the third quarter as the Lady Wildcats tied the game just 58 seconds into the frame. 

Not long afterwards, the Lady Wildcats were back in front at 28-26, before eventually taking a 30-26 advantage.

But Thackerville’s lead was short-lived as the Lady Foxes responded with a 13-8 run to end the third quarter and lead 39-38 going to the fourth. 

Both teams traded the lead multiple times down the stretch, before Fox took the lead for good with 1:51 left in regulation at 48-47.
