The game was tightly contested throughout, early on Iowa City High hopped out to a 12-4 lead but after that Johnston went on a monster 17-0 run through two quarters to give themselves a 21-12 lead. They kept that lead going into halftime up 30-28. The third quarter is where the momentum moved towards Iowa City High as they outscored Johnston 16-4 in the third taking a 44-34 lead heading into the fourth quarter. Johnston stormed there way back into the game however they couldn’t bring it all the way back after a controversial travel was called on Maya McDermott ’20 when Johnston was down by two all but ended the game after Iowa City High made their free throws.
