The 59-55 win was played out in the Hatch Valley High gym, as a neutral site,with hundreds of Tiger fans filling the stands, with the Tiger cheer team leading the crowd in a mighty Tiger roar.

After playing from behind for more than a half, the Tigers leapt to the lead at last, in the final three minutes of the third quarter. A tireless Tiger team defense that allowed just six points in the third quarter was the work of every Tiger on the court.
