Scotland County continued to add to the lead, outscoring Brashear 11-3 in the third period behind the perimeter shooting of Jackson and Dial. On the night, the duo connected on six three pointers.

Jackson added 12 points for SCR-I, which improved to 8-6 on the season with the win, and Dial added nine points.
