Burnet tried to slow down the high-paced attack of Hardin Jefferson, and it worked early on. Bulldogs led 19-17 at halftime. But the Lady Hawks scored 16 in the third to grab the lead and hold on for the win.  

Burnet's Emma Lewis was the leading scorer, with 17 in the game. Hattie Blair added 10.
