The blue & gold jumped out to a 13-5 lead but Nazareth climbed back in and trailed by one, 17-16, after ten minutes. The Golden Flyers continued their run in the 2nd quarter and outscored ASC 14-4 to head into the half with a 30-21 lead. Both teams got the offense going in the 3rd but Nazareth extended their lead to 58-40 heading into the final 10 minutes. The Pioneers outscored the Flyers 21-10 and cut the lead down to eight in the final minute but couldn't get any closer.
