Trenton took the lead on a three-point shot by McKinley Hurley within the final two minutes of regulation. Tom Johnson had the play-by-play call:

The Trenton boys struggled early against the visiting Hornets, and found themselves down by 11 points early in the third quarter. However, a 14-0 surge by the Bulldogs gave THS the lead, and Trenton held on over the fourth quarter for a 62-56 win.

Trenton already had scored four consecutive points midway through the third quarter, when senior forward Wilson Utley brought the Bulldogs right back onto the Hornet's heels:
