The Falcons led 5-4 after one quarter of play, as both teams were still trying to figure each other out. The Indians outscored the Falcons 8-3 in the second quarter and led 12-8 at the half. Velma Jackson went on a 10-7 run over the course of the third quarter to make the score 19-18 Yazoo City at the end of three quarters, before the Indians posted a 17-13 final quarter to seal the win.
