The Warriors used a fourth quarter surge to seal the game late, outscoring the Eagles 23-13 in the final frame. Next the Warriors traveled to their conference nemesis, Pella, to take on the Dutch a game that would help shape the conference standings at the end of the initial first round of conference play. Pella proved to be the better of the two on this night as they dropped the Warriors in a physically-contested game 63-44. Junior Matt Guessford was the only Warrior to reach double figures in scoring as he had a season high 13 points. The Warriors now stand at 5-4 overall on the season and are 3-1 in conference play.

In their first duel, the Warriors took care of Indianola 40-28 and then fell in their second duel to South- east Warren, 34-33, in which the criteria of overall number of matches won deter- mined the winner.
