After three quarters, the blue & gold led 43-42 but Houghton held a 25-8 advantage in the 4th to take the victory.

Jordyn Pettit (Wellsville) led the Pioneers with 13 points and nine boards while Sylar Shaulis (Ovid/South Seneca) finished with 12. Rayanna Anderson (Wellsville) and Kelsey Shaulis (Ovid/South Seneca) each chipped in nine.
