Felicity was able to expand its lead to 20, 43-23, with 3:52 left in the third. The Astros began to chip away at the deficit.

A three by Dylan Peterman and two by Matt Mitchell fueled a 13-3 Astro run. East Clinton pulled within 10, 46-36, in the waning seconds of the third.

Seth Roehm found space under the basket for Felicity and scored as time expired in the quarter to push Felicity’s lead back to 12, 48-36.

Roehm’s basket began a 10-2 run that put the game out of reach. Felicity led 56-38 with 5:15 left and never looked back.
