The closest they came in the final two periods was early in the third period when they managed to cut the lead to one point.

The varsity squad played the Jaguars tough throughout the game finally losing in the end 72-62. The score was much closer throughout the game with the Jaguars only getting the big lead in the last couple of minutes of the game.

The Bears played tough throughout the whole game even taking a two-point lead into the locker room at the half, but the height of the Jaguars gave the Bears trouble down the stretch.

At the end of the third period the Jaguars had a five-point lead, but Keith managed to get within two point with 3:46 left in the game. But towards the end the Jaguars just were too much.
