Hawks hold on

The Hawks built a double-digit lead (27-16) in the opening half.

The Thunder swayed the momentum with a 14-4 run in the third quarter. Brittany Martinez's putback gave Central Valley a 31-30 lead heading into the final period.

Lorenzo played a major role as the Hawks outscored Buhach Colony 7-2 in the closing five minutes. She assisted on Central Valley's last three baskets.

Carmona converted a layup.

Brittany Martinez finished inside the paint twice. She also made one foul shot.
