The Golden Rams shot 51.3 percent in the opening half and out-rebounded Rainy River 26-13.

Rainy River managed to trim the deficit to ten points midway thru the second half, but a quick four point spurt from the Golden Rams provided more cushion, and the lead swelled back up to 19 with five minutes to go.
