The Scots fell behind 19–2 after one period of play and were unable to make up that deficit. A 10-point run in the second quarter got them within a 33–21 margin, but Highland would not be able to get within single digits the rest of the way.
Heather Thacker finished with 14 points to lead the Scots in the contest.
