Southwest jumped to an early 6-0 lead just two minutes into the game. Led by Daniel Chance, with four points and one steal, the Bulldogs jumped on top early and led 12-4 at the end of the period.
Jed Borovik and Nick Hassig led the Bulldogs scoring drive in the second quarter of action. Hassig finished with a game-high 12 points. Central's Matthew Ruder kept the Mustangs in the hunt with strong play in the paint and a couple buckets of his own.
Southwest outscored Central for the third straight period and extended their lead to 14 points an offensive outburst from Nick Hassig. Coulter Vestal came alive for Central grabbing multiple rebounds and getting the Mustangs second-chance opportunities at the basket.
Central mounted a comeback on the heels of great pressure defense, but fell short. Despite holding Southwest scoreless in the final period of play, Central needed eight more points to take the lead and get the win. Vestal and Joel Bonner scored for the Mustangs, but the Bulldogs had built a big enough cushion to hold on for the victory.
