The Dolphins brought good energy early on and trailed 9-8 at the end of the first quarter, but Battery Creek just couldn’t find a rhythm at the offensive end. Creek made just six field goals all night and shot 11 percent overall, including 1-for-20 from 3-point range.
Creek’s defense kept it in the game, holding the Vikings to 27 percent from the floor. The Dolphins were within 20-17 at halftime before going frigid in the second half.
A 3-pointer from Sophia Felix gave Creek a flash of hope in the fourth quarter, pulling the Dolphins within five, but Denmark-Olar used a strong performance on the boards to neutralize the comeback and close it out.
Felix had five points and nine rebounds, Myra Smith and Iesha Shaw each scored five points, and Emonee Johnson had four points and nine boards for the Dolphins.
