A meager three-point second quarter allowed the Silver Foxes to pounce, and the Bengals never recovered. Dutch Fork put 18 in the second.

Both teams scored 20 in the third, and Blythewood only managed a seven-point quarter again in the fourth. Dutch Fork’s Madison Golden reamed the Bengals for 22 points and Katrice Jackson had 18.
