The third quarter was when the Raiders went to work, opening the frame on a 12-2 run to take a 37-35 lead. Maddie Durkin scored 12 of the Raiders 20 points in the frame. The Raiders held the Irish to 8 points in third jumping out to a 45-41 lead after 3.
Various injuries to different Raiders took some momentum out of the Raiders sails in the 4th as the Irish scrapped back to a 50-49 lead with 2:21 left in the game. The Raiders were able to retake a 51-50 lead but that would be their last as the Irish forced 3 turnovers in the last minute on route to a 59-53 win over the Raiders
