Perry Central quickly cooled off in the second period, while Letcher Central began to find their range. The Cougars made a strong comeback in the period, but the Commodores were able to limp into the locker room with the 31-26 advantage.

Both teams picked up their defensive efforts in the third period, with the offenses playing to a tie (13-all). The Commodores went into the final period with their five-point advantage still intact (44-39).

The even play continued into the fourth quarter, with Letcher Central making a strong rally late. The Cougars got to within a single basket late, but the Commodores managed to stave off the attack.
