St Mary won the opening tip and scored in the first 10 seconds on a layup by Weston Geraets.  Centerville did have a short 7-6 lead with 5:00 to play in the first quarter, but St Mary made sure it was a short-lived lead as they scored on their next two possessions.  The Cardinals maintained a four-to-six point lead through much of the rest of quarter and pushed that lead to eight points at 25-17 by the break.  St Mary pushed their lead into double digits early in the second quarter, but the Tornadoes got back within five points at 34-29 with 2:30 to go in the half.  The Cardinals then ended the quarter on a 10-2 run to take a 44-31 lead into halftime.

The Cardinal offense and defense put together a great third quarter that helped push the St Mary lead to nearly 30 points.  The Cardinals outscored the Tornadoes 26-12 in the quarter for a 70-43 lead heading into the final quarter.  St Mary again outscored Centerville in the final quarter 14-6 for the win.
