While the Warriors came back the Eagles made shots when they needed to to seal the win. With about 21 seconds remaining West Valley made two free throws to go up 45-42.

In the second quarter Del Norte could not get the ball in the basket or stop the speedy Hornets from making buckets and found themselves behind 42-7 at the half.

In the first half the Warriors  turned the ball over 17 times and  had 24 turnovers for the contest.

Things went a little bit better in the second half,  especially in parts of the third quarter, Del Norte discovered  a  bit more of a flow on offense, with several players making three-pointers, but the deficit was much too great to overcome. By the end of the game the score read 71-39 Enterprise.

Del Norte dropped to 3-6 for the year while the Hornets improved to 6-4.

Leading the way for Del Norte was Nick McBride with 10 points.
