Lewis & Clark found its touch in the third quarter by shooting 9-for-18 from the floor, but the Loggers continued to struggled and shot 2-for-10 in the third quarter. Eight turnovers only made things worse in the period for Puget Sound.

Elizabeth Prewitt led the Loggers in scoring with 13 points. Jamie Lange added 12 points and eight rebounds, and Meghan Hamel finished with nine points and nine points.

The Loggers crashed the boards hard all game, as 20 of their 45 rebounds came on the offensive end.
