Voehl finished with a game-high 16 points for SSC, including seven in the game's first four minutes when the Quasars opened up an early 10-1 lead.
But the Knights took control of the rest of the first half, outscoring SSC by a commanding 27-10 margin over the next 14 minutes.
The second half was evenly-played with the Quasars gradually cutting into the lead before finally getting ahead on Voehl's long shot.
The Knights -- who were 16 of 27 at the free-throw stripe, compared to a 2-of-7 performance by the Quasars -- scored seven of their last nine points at the line.
Katey Granstra was held to eight points, but claimed 12 rebounds and blocked three shots for the Quasars, who host Adrian Thursday.
