Seymour would begin to push in transition and convert off of Menasha turnovers to go into halftime with a convincing 21-14 lead. The Lady Thunder would continue to hold their lead with a quick 3-pointer to start the second half. Although Seymour would still find themselves in foul trouble they were still able to cruise to a 52-31 win to advance to the regional semifinal.
Seymour was led by Dinah King with 19 points. Number 9 Seymour then headed to Luxemberg-Casco to take on the #1 Spartans. Seymour would find themselves in the lead for the opening six minutes of the game. Seymour and Luxemberg-Casco would continue to go neck and neck, with several lead changes, forcing a Spartan time out. Out of the time out the Spartans couldn’t do anything wrong and paired with foul calls against Seymour, Seymour would find themselves going into halftime down 20-40.
Seymour would come out in the second half hoping to chip away but it was all Luxemberg-Casco. The Lady Thunders season comes to an end with a 42-79 loss.
