Here the Cards bet the Eagles 70-66 who had twice been victorious over them.

The Cards had a very slow start as the opening minutes showed Unionville with a 9-2 lead. The Cards came back with great force but still trailed 16-12 at the end of the quarter. The Cards force was still going strong as they outscored the Eagles 24-16. The Cards retired to the locker room with a 36-32 lead.

The third quarter showed two evenly balanced teams but the Cards were still ahead at the end of the quarter 50-45.

The Eagles gave the Cards a real scare during the fourth quarter as they came close, tied, and by-passed them once. With a minute to go the Cards trailed by one point but with Burn’s free throws and Cripps basket in the final seconds the Cards came through with a 70-66 victory.
