Despite final margin, the district 9-3A matchup between the Lady Bobcats and Lady Pirates began neck and neck. Erath jumped out ahead in the first quarter, 10-5, with a speedy offense and scrappy guards in Megan Norris (34) and Caitlin Domingues (22). Kaplan contested the Lady Bobcat lead with a Kailey Lejeune (22) jump shot from the wing, setting the Kaplan girls ahead for only a moment, 12-10. Erath’s Norris (34) drew a foul in the paint, bringing her to the line where she’d win back a lead that would remain in Erath’s favor.

The second half was Erath’s for the taking. The Lady Bobcats came out in a full court press, determined to stunt any Kaplan offensive effort. Ball movement from Alaina Harrington (50) to Norris (34) took the Lady Bobcat lead to 8 with 2:20 remaining in the 3rd. The Lady Pirates worked the ball around the edges, but lacked any presence down low. As the final minutes made way, Norris (34) took the Erath lead into double digits at the line, bringing the score to 30-20 with only 7:00 on the clock. The Lady Bobcats speed and effective ball movement proved effective as the girls outscored Kaplan 19-8 in the fourth quarter. Alexis Harrington’s (14) layup late in the game brought Erath’s lead to 20, 45-25, and affirmed a 9-3A district win.
