It was a game that had been marked on the calendars since the schedule was announced, a rematch between MDI and Presque Isle and the game didn't disappoint! Both teams came into the game undefeated, and MDI ended the game victorious, defeating Presque Isle 70-64 to end the Wildcats 6 year home unbeaten streak!

These two teams know each other intimately, and both wanted to limit the scoring of each other's "go-to" player, Hannah Graham for Presque Isle, and Kelsey Shaw for MDI. Both teams were successful in this endeavor, thanks to some foul trouble, as Shaw picked up three fouls early, and was limited in her first half play, and Graham with 4 fouls, missing the majority of the third and early 4th quarters.
