Two sister schools tapped off for a game of basketball at Edgewood High School. Overbrook showed up with 16 players (of which 15 played). Edgewood had 10 players and all of them got a chance to play.

The game started off with a missed layup by Edgewood. The Overbrook Lady Rams never looked back. They scored the first 11 points of the game with a pressure defense that made the Edgewood Eagles turn the ball over. Edgewood's Coach Mr. Ernst called a time out to settle down his very young team. When the first quarter ended the score was Overbrook 15, Edgewood 10. The leading scorers in the first quarter were Overbrook's #24 Finger (6 pts.) and Edgewood's #24 McClellan (7 pts.). In the second quarter, Overbrook extended its lead by scoring 21 points, with #11 Barney getting 9. Edgewood scored 9 points, with #23 Minatee getting 3. The half came to a conclusion with Overbrook leading by the score of 36 to 19. The Edgewood Cheerleading squad provided half time support of their team with a performance for the players and fans.

The third quarter had Overbrook scoring 12 points by 5 different players, while Edgewood could only get one field goal. The third ended with Overbrook increasing their lead to 48 to 21. The fourth quarter had Edgewood scoring 15 point by 5 different players and Overbrook also scoring 12 points by 5 different players. The final score was Overbrook 60 - Edgewood 36.
