Six Cardinals were able to get into the scoring column on the night with Keaton Backhaus leading the way.  Keaton scored a game high 11 points. Merrix Denn was next with 6 points, Carter Schnoor and John Munter each scored 4. Avery Bermel and Sam Lemmons rounded out the scoring with 2 each.

The Plainview Pirates came to town for the final game of the 3 game set.  The Cards held a slim 14-13 lead after the first period.  A strong second period had the locals up 28-23, however they were unable to hang on.  Plainview outscored Randolph 17-7 in the final period to take the contest by a 40-35 margin.
