Jaden Kelly led UD with 15 points off the bench. Miah Smith had 13 points, but grabbed a game high 14 rebounds. Abigail Zurcher addded 11 points, and the duo of Amari Sims and Lexi Daniels would each score 10 points in the heart breaking loss at home. The Spartans third quarter lead of 64-56 would be short lived after the visiting Kohawks out scored the Spartans in the final 10 minutes of action by a 25-14 margin.
