It was not easy sailing for head coach Harlon Sevier's team throughout the entire game -- after leading the Tigers 26-21 at the end of the first half, and leading by as much as 10 points in the opening minutes of the second half, the Trojans let Portola wither that lead to just one point by the end of the third period. Senior Jasmin Sherman led the Trojans back from that brink in a big way by scoring 27 points on the night. Her play was easily the most Weber retires as head consistent offensive display of the game as she scored in each period and earned a 16-point second half. In fact, one of the biggest plays of the fourth period had Sherman's name written all over it. With three minutes to go in the game, Sherman hit a bucket and, after Portola' inbounded, immediately took a steal that she drove to the hoop for another deuce -- and a foul against her under the basket by Portola. After the game, Sherman said a poor showing under the basket helped contribute to the dwindling lead the Trojans eperienced near the end of the match.

Though junior Haley Cline only scored three for the Trojans, she was a powerhouse on defense and contributed a pair of steals against the Tigers. She said the speed of the game Quincy is playing against foes has contributed to their success in league. "We really slowed down our tempo in this game by seeing our passes and seeing the court in general," Cline said. "It has helped us out to do that this season.

For Quincy, Angel Garrish scored 12 points, which included a six-of-eight showing from the free-throw line. Kaylin Henderson added nine of her own and the duo of Brooke Potter and Rachel Hanna ended with eight. Shania Barnes finished with three.
