New England College would begin the frame on a 9-0 run, giving the Pilgrims a 28-13 lead. Elms would try to cut into the deficit, but NEC grew their lead to as large as 16 (33-17), the Blazers would battle back and cut into the NEC lead and head into halftime down 14 (35-21).

In the third quarter, both teams traded chances, with the Pilgrims expanding their advantage to as large as 21 (44-23), but a late run by Elms College sent the two teams into the final quarter with NEC leading 46-31.  

New England College continued to apply the pressure on the Blazers, as they pushed their lead back to 20 points (56-36). Elms would have a late run but would still fall 57-43 in the NECC matchup.
