Senior Rachel Thompson had a big night, leading the Bulldogs charge with 20 points, while teammates Chena Litzen scored six and Allison Litke added five. The Braves were led by Tori Thomas with 11 points, while teammate Renatta Olson had 10.

After a slow start, the Bulldogs held the Braves scoreless in the second quarter while notching 12 points, resulting in an 18-11 lead at halftime.
