Paige Atkins followed by sinking the ball for 2 while being fouled. The Coahoma senior then successfully converted the the free throw to add one more point. Rodgers struck next burying a second 3-point basket followed by two more field goals. Cassie Grant ended the night for Coahoma by dropping in the last basket from behind the arc.
