Coming into the second half, both teams were able to score early and often. Pine City was able to erase their 10 point deficit, but just as they got within striking distance Braham went on a run of their own to hold the lead. As the half moved along, the action heated up. Late in the game the Dragons grabbed the lead, but only for a short time as Braham took no time to tie the game at 54. After both teams traded baskets, Pine City was able grabbed the lead once again, this time they would hold onto it. Braham was forced to foul, and the Dragons added to their lead at the free throw line. Pine City got the victory in come from behind fashion.
