Weatherly closed the half with 15 points and ten rebounds.

After Kirstyn Arcata opened the third period with a three-pointer, the Quakers produced another 8-0 run to widen the lead to 22 points with 5:50 left in the quarter. Guilford’s lead grew as large as 23 points in the period to close the period, their largest lead of the game. With reserves in the contest for Guilford, the Quakers maintained the large margin early, but Shenandoah held the Quakers without a bucket for a 3:32 span of the early fourth quarter while the Hornets produced a 10-4 run to cut the lead as low as 15 points. Guilford pulled away as the Quakers extended the lead back to 20 points with 2:43 left in the quarter to seal the victory.

Weatherly finished the evening with 17 points and 12 rebounds while shooting eight-of-14 from the field. Heaven Walters (Yadkinville, N.C./Starmount) represented the remaining Quaker in double-figure scoring with 11 points on four-of-five shooting while pulling down seven rebounds. Guilford’s bench held a decisive advantage over the Hornets, 25-4.

Shannon Kuhn led the Hornets with 16 points on five-of-15 shooting, the lone Hornet in double-figure scoring. Olivia Callan added nine points and four assists.

The Quakers shot 47.5 percent from the field, including a blistering nine-of-14 (64.3 percent) in the second quarter and 50 percent in the third frame. Shenandoah shot 26.1 percent from the field, which rose in the fourth quarter thanks to a 38.9 percent effort.

Guilford’s transition offense dominated, holding a crushing advantage in fast break points, 16-0. The Quakers also dominated the interior offense, out-scoring the Hornets in the paint, 44-18.
