Fairfield blew open what had been a close match through the first two quarters of play, a 16-14 Lady Eagle lead, to score 18 unanswered points after the lead had grown to 18-15, and all but settle the outcome after 3 periods!

They led 36-15 going into the final quarter, then rode the consistent play of Dameka Shed, Emily Knight, Brandi Carter, McKayla Thurman, Carrington Roberts, Kiera Birdow, and Joanna Zamora to a convincing and much-needed 49-27 victory!
