A circus shot by Luke Harris cut the lead down to just one at 43-42 at the 7:10 mark in the final quarter.

Tinora would not go quietly, they would get within two on a deep three by Luke Harris, his 25th point of the game with two seconds remaining. Tinora would be unable to stop the clock as they were out of timeouts, the Blackbirds would hold on for a 61-59 win.
