New Prague trailed 46-26 going into the fourth period and tried to mount a comeback, but Holy Angels prevailed for the 16-point win.

Tom Giesen, who scored 17 points, led the Trojans. No other Trojans were in double figures. New Prague had only four players score, and got no points from their bench.
