The Lady Dragons tied it up after three periods and then outscored Valley 18-11 in the final period to claim the nod.
Alisha Carter, who connected from downtown twice, finished with eight points, while Karissa Headley and Erin Brown each tacked on six markers. Kaitlyn Brown and Sarah Bassett each knocked in a free throw for the 'Jills.
