The game started off neck-and-neck, ending the first quarter with a score of 15-16 with Taft right behind then. They ended the first half with a score of 37-30 with Taft in the lead. Taft came out hot, ending the third quarter with a comfortable lead of 52-39. The last few minutes of the game were the most intense due to Cesar Chavez coming back cutting the lead to three. Connor Mcafee made a fast-break lay-up and a free throw to give the ‘Cats a cushion. At the buzzer, Dylan Self, who ended the game with 25 Points, dunked the ball to end the game with a score of  69-62.
