Guy point guard Tim Campbell scored a game-high 26 points, including nine in the first quarter and 10 in the fourth quarter, but the Junior Eagles nearly shut down the rest of the team. In a fast-paced first quarter, Guy held an 11-9 advantage until Lawson swiped a steal and scored, tying the game entering the second quarter. Campbell sped ahead of the pack for a layup early in the second before West Side closed the period with 12 consecutive, starting with three free throws and two baskets from Hipp, who sliced down the right baseline for a layup as the Jr. Eagles built an 18-13 lead. Following a Guy timeout with 2:23 left until halftime, West Side guard Shane Kimble gave West Side a boost off the bench with a three-pointer from right wing off an assist from Hipp, who pulled down a tough rebound between two taller defenders. Forward Mason Treece added a difficult turnaround jumper from right baseline, extending West Side's lead to 23-13 at intermission. The Jr. Eagles outscored Guy 15-9 in the third quarter as Dalton Treece and Lawson each contributed six points, while Payden Stewart canned a three-pointer.
