But the Farmer’s poured it on in the fourth quarter, outscoring the Warriors 15-8 and forcing the OT.

Jaeda Wildgoose led all players with 16 points, followed by Adreana Miller with 13 and Alexandra Jackson with 10. Tahirah Scott scored 6 points, and Amiyah Rankins and Mary Trossi each had 4 points.
