Hannahville scored just 6 seconds in; Colton Fisher made our first. Jeremy Hepker made a goodinterception. AnthRi was out on injury early in the game. Our guys did some good passing down at our end, but they seldom got around to shooting there was a lot of fast traversing of the court – a fast game to watched, but Hannahville was out-shooting them at every round.

Collin Armstrong started the 2nd half out right by hoping a couple in. ToFri made the last goal at 1:50 and game ended 29-59.
