Post would answer in this seesaw affair to go ahead 55-54 with 7:25 remaining on a Jasmine Moore three pointer but the Knights responded to regain the upper hand on a Jennifer Robbins bucket 32 seconds later.
The lead changed hands once more before QC forged a 67-63 advantage with 2:03 left on a Chloe Johnson three pointer. With the Knights ahead 67-64, Gina Catherall made a steal and in the subsequent possession, Nicolette Marciniak scored off an offensive rebound to pull Post within a point with 33 seconds remaining.
Post would steal the ball once again - Noelle Pawlicki made the theft with 10 seconds left this time - and Jasmine Moore found Catherall for the and one and a two point victory.
