Carbon had no plans of slowing down as Timothy would get a nice assist to Sorenson on a fast-break possession in the first minute of the second half. Jacie Jensen would then find Timothy at the three-point line with a nice bounce pass, putting the Lady Dinos on another run.

Timothy scored on another three-point shot later in the quarter, followed by a offensive rebound that turned to two points by Orth. Closing out the third quarter, Sorenson would get herself another three for the Lady Dinos and Jensen made a contested two pointer, bringing the lead to 17 at the end of three. Carbon would eventually get its 12th win, 53-41.
