Warsaw had a 28-21 advantage on the boards.
“The other thing we wanted to do was limit the number of second shots Memorial got,” Harter said.
Junior Pam Miller tossed in nine points, Leek eight and senior Brooklyn Harrison seven for the Tigers.
Memorial finishes 6-11.
Concord had to rely on the efforts of senior Alexis Williams who was 8-of-12 from the free-throw line in the fourth.
“Alexis is a senior and we want to put the ball in her hands,” Ross said. “In games we have been successful this season she has hit some big free throws for us.”
Central played better after the opening quarter. Concord led 18-9 at halftime and 28-20 after three periods.
“The first quarter I blame on nerves,” Central coach Will Coatie said. “I’m so proud of the girls and the way they battled back.”
The Blue Blazers outscored Concord in each of the last three periods.
Part of the reason was the second-half play of junior Daitriona Bonds as she netted 20 of the game-high 26 points after intermission.
“We challenged her at halftime to be a leader,” Coatie said. “She took over in the second half.”
Williams scored 14 points to lead Concord. Freshman Tylar Roberson added nine, junior Jade Iavagnilio and sophomore Nicole Wilhelm both six and junior Mackenzie Rutter five.
Senior Michelle Detwiler grabbed 11 rebounds for Concord.
“She was a beast on the boards in the first half,” Ross said.
Sophomore Basia Martinez scored four points, sophomores Jasmine Cotton and Aleiyah Williams three apiece for the Blazers.
Central finishes 2-18.
Concord edged Goshen 41-39 in overtime when the two played during the regular season.
“We are trying to do things that have never been done before at Concord,” Ross said. “I think is the sixth sectional game we have won in the 2000’s but we have never won two in the same year.
“Goshen has a good team and I’m sure (coach) Lenny Krebs will have some adjustments ready for what we did to them last time.”
