For the rest of the second quarter, both teams trade punches over and over again ending the half (28-24) with Seneca in the lead once again. With the start of the third quarter, Ty Mcdermott (10) starts of with a quick two points followed by Tyler Daniels shooting a three from deep making the score 29-28.
