The Alva Goldbugs and Fairview Yellowjackets came into Thursday night's match-up with identical 2-4 records. Fairview's older players showed their experience in better three-point shooting but had trouble from the free throw line.

Alva led at the end of the first period 14-10, but by halftime the score was tied at 29. Fairview pulled slightly ahead to edge Alva 45-44 at the end of three, and went on to win 57-53.
