Millwood bumped the lead to 10 in the second half but No. 5 Verdigris wouldn’t go away. The Lady Cardinals closed to within four points in the final 23 seconds but Millwood’s Shamyla Johnson hit three straight free throws down the stretch to seal the victory.

“You are never comfortable in these types of games,’’ Spears said. “These are championship games and it’s not over until it’s over.”

Mekale Chapple pulled down a game-high 12 rebounds for Millwood (24-4). Baileigh O’Dell led fifth-ranked Verdigris (24-5) with 19 points.

Reid was happy with the way her team responded to the late challenge by Verdigris in the second half.

“I like the way my team held it together today,” she said.
