“Hustling back in the first half” is what Chaffin basketball player Jeffery Clunn had to say when asked about what they did well to get an early lead. Chaffin was up by at least 10 points in the first half. They fought for rebounds and did well.

In the second half, George scored some points, but there wasn’t any chance to come back against Chaffin. The game was over by the third quarter when Chaffin took a massive lead. This was due to a few players, but notably Chaffin basketball player Baron Hoyt, as he did a good job driving to the paint and finishing. Other notable players were Landon Schwartz and Samuel Robbins.
