The defense played an important role for Isabella as well by forcing turnovers and getting Maplesville to take contested shots.

The second half narrative was the same. Isabella kept the defensive pressure high and the offense was able to get easy transition baskets off turnovers.

Chattman maintained her aggressive offensive play in the second half for the Mustangs as she scored 11 points in the third quarter.

Maplesville could not seem to answer any of the Isabella attacks and never cut into the deficit to keep it within competitive reach as they were outscored every quarter.

Tydasia Davis led Maplesville in scoring with 13 points.

Chattman led Isabella with 29 points.
