"I was really impressed with our kid's composure and fight tonight," head coachRachelle Sayers said. "They played their hearts out and it's unfortunate that someone had to lose that game. In the end, we turned it over too many times and didn't rebound the way we have all year. I'm really proud of them, they hung in there with limited preparation time and having to play a hard fought game at Tech and then to come down here and face a really good and fresh LC State team and battle them to double OT. We will see them again. It hurts right now but we have a lot of games left to play."
 
The Saints next host the University of Great Falls Friday in Helena.
