Concordia held their biggest lead of the game,17-8, with 12:01 left in the first half, but the Chargers would rally and eventually use a Rodwell trey to knot the score, 34-34.  Ginyard would later re-tie the score at 40-all on a layup with a little over a minute left, but the Clippers would net a three-point basket with 41 ticks on the clock to take the 43-40 advantage into the locker room.

In the second half, the contest saw their fourth tie, 54-54 with 12:45 to play when Dominican went on a 13-6 run to pull ahead 67-60 and would later extend their lead to double-digits, 74-63, on two free throws from Rodwell with a little under six minutes left. The Clippers would close the game on a 12-11 edge for the final 92-83 DC win.
