With their leading scorer, senior Jordan McDuffie, out and a berth in the Maryland 1A Regional Final on the line, the Lady Rams of McDonough faced a tough test versus a determined Surrattsville team. The Hornets came out on fire, going on a 9-0 run to begin the game. The Rams stormed back with a 21-5 run and never trailed in the game again, eventually taking a 10-point lead into the 4th quarter. The Hornets would not go away and the game was competitive to the end.

Junior forward Reed Butler had another double-double with 14 points and a dominating 21 rebounds.
