The Lions won the first quarter, led by guard Matt Steggamen, with the help of his brother Andrew. Austin did not put as much of a fight in the first game. The Lions won the second game as well.

Ian and Zach Bowling had this game under wraps. The Lions were up two to zero against the Eagles at this first point. The third game, the Lions lost.

The Eagles’ big guys were the reason why the won the third game. The series was now at two to one, Lions. The last game for the varsity pulled out a victory.
