It was a slow first half in a game heard 92.1FM KRLS and kniakrls.com. Pella had an 8-5 lead after one quarter, and the three point lead held at the half, 14-11.

The Lady Dutch would come out looking much better in the third quarter, as they outscored Carlisle 14-7, taking a 28-18 lead into the final quarter.

As it turned out, Pella could’ve gotten away without scoring in the final eight minutes, outscoring Carlisle 11-3.
