The final 6th grade game of the opening night of the Perry County tournament saw the A. B. Combs Lady Bearcats and the Willard Lady Warhawks take the floor. The game was tight in the early going, but turned in favor of the Lady Bearcats in the second period. They were able to hold on for the 34-25 win.

The rapid pace of the game kept scoring at a premium, and at the end of the first period, the game was knotted at six. A. B. Combs took control of the momentum in the second frame and moved into a 15-8 advantage at the break.

The Lady Bearcats continued to control the tempo and the momentum coming out of the break. A. B. Combs finished the quarter well in control with the 26-12 lead.

Willard was able to turn the tables on A. B. Combs in the final period, but could not erase their deficit completely. The Lady Bearcats moved on in tournament play with the 34-25 win.
