In their third straight postseason rematch, this time against the defending state champs, the Lady Macks (25-4, 12-2 Western Cloverbelt Conference) faced the young but talented Royals (27-3, 14-2 Marawood - South), at the Resch Center in Green Bay.
McDonell jumped out to an early advantage, but Assumption counterpunched with a flurry of three-point shooting to take a seven-point advantage into the half.
Without their leading scorer and rebounder for almost the entire second half, McDonell fell behind by as many as 12, but battled back valiantly - taking the lead with just over a minute to play - before seeing their comeback bid fall just short at the final horn.
