Phillipsburg (3-2) scored the first six points of the second half and would eventually outscore TMP (3-2) 19-10 in the third quarter.
The Lady Panthers built up a 13-point lead early on in the fourth quarter, but a rally driven by senior Rachel Jacobs got TMP back in the contest.
Jacobs scored nine of her season-high 25 points in the fourth quarter. The Fort Hays State University signee drilled five 3-pointers in the game. The Lady Monarchs (3-2) finished the game on a 20-4 run.
TMP put a halt to a two-game slide and will play their first home game this Friday night versus the Ellinwood Lady Eagles.
