On Wednesday, Monett struggled with the quickness and pressure of the Lady Cardinals.
Monett trailed 16-10 after one and 27-14 at intermission.
Webb City roared out of the halftime locker room and pushed the lead to 21 in the first two minutes and led 50-27 at the end of the third.
Scoring for Monett: Alyssa Williams, 12; Kaesha George, 10; Katie Schmidt, 8; Abby Patton, 6; and Kim Parris, 1.
The Lady Cubs finished the season 12-14.
