First, Will Sterling hit a pair of free throws with 43.2 seconds left to make it 52-51 and Dennis Hebert hit a pair of free throws with 13.3 seconds left. A long 3-point attempt as time expired was off the mark for Hahnville, giving Catholic the win.

Catholic grabbed a 13-6 lead after one quarter on the strength of a pair of 3-pointers by Stan Levy. The Bears led 31-24 at halftime and maintained a 42-38 advantage going to the final quarter.
