"Our defense was really good, especially in the half-court set," said St. Pat's coach Nathan Stienike. "When they did get a shot, we rebounded and limited them to one shot."

The Lady Irish (13-1) took a a 9-2 lead after a putback by Brittany Lawrence almost halfway through the first quarter.

St. Pat's then took its first double-digit lead at 16-6 when Mandy O'Malley made a three-pointer. The Irish followed with a made free throw by Samantha Byrn and a basket by Shelby Allberry.

In the second quarter, St. Pat's stretched the lead to 20 points when Brook Boucher hit a three to make it 31-11 with a little under two minutes left in the first half. Both teams traded baskets the rest of the way and it was 33-13 at halftime.

By keeping Southwest (4-10) in check, the Lady Irish were able to get playing time for its backups for much of the second half.
