The Lady Wildcats got off to a slow start in the Clopton game, as they fell behind 9-1 by the end of the first quarter. After Clopton scored the first basket of the second quarter to lead 11-1, R-2 finally got things going on offense outscoring Clopton 8-0 over the next four minutes to close the gap to 11-9. However, Clopton outscored R-2 12-2 in the last 3½ minutes of the first half to lead 23-11 at halftime.
Defense was the name of the game in the second half as neither team was able to score many points. Clopton outscored the Lady Wildcats 7-6 in the third quarter to make the score 30-17. In the fourth quarter both teams scored 7 points each, which gave Clopton a 37-24 victory.

In the Fulton game the Lady Wildcats were able to get off a quick start as Muchow hit two 3-point shots and Reagan added 4 points and Thomas added 2 points to give R-2 a 12-6 lead. The teams played almost even in the second quarter as Fulton outscored R-2 12-11 to close the gap to 23-18 at halftime.
