In a game at the Chillicothe High School gymnasium, Linn County claimed dominance early, with a 9-0 run in the first quarter that gave the Lady Mustangs the advantage in a defensive struggle. Britane Hubbard, Megan Schreiner, and Lauren Russell spurred the run, giving LC an 11-4 lead after the first quarter. Both teams struggled offensively in the second quarter, with LC leading 17-11 at the break.

The third quarter saw Linn County scuffle, with the lead shrinking to just two points midway through the frame, however, the Lady Mustangs found some late offense in the third quarter, that helped to ignite an 8-0 run that extended well into the final period. The Lady Pirates could not connect well enough on the offensive end to threaten Linn County's lead late, with the final score reading 39-27.

The win sends the Lady Mustangs to Pershing Arena (Truman State University) in Kirksville on Saturday, to play the traditional state power Marion County Lady Mustangs at 1 o'clock. Marion County advanced through Tuesday's sectional round with a 51-48 win over Community. Linn County is now 19-9. Marion County is 16-9.

Other Class 1 GIRL'S sectional results from Tuesday were:
Chadwick 58, Bunker 53
Walnut Grove 61, St. Elizabeth 43
Drexel 50, Bunceton 42
