Addy Clift scored 31 points, and the Cowgirls closed out the game on a 12-4 run to beat the Fort Cobb-Broxton Lady Mustangs, 55-47, at Abe Lemons Arena at Oklahoma City University on Thursday.

Kiowa’s postseason run ended in Friday’s semifinal at State Fair Arena, when the Cheyenne-Reydon Lady Bears beat the Cowgirls, 65-56.
