Chester went silent in the second quarter, not scoring a point and the Tigers led 29-10 at the end of the half.

On the Boys side, Howard jumped out to an early advantage and never trailed in the game, winning 58-30. It was 18-6 after one and 35-12 at the break. The height and size of the Tigers were too much for the Flyers to overcome.
