The game began with Cochise jumping out to a quick 11-4 lead and nine minutes into the half they led 24-15.  Eastern then came to life and went on a 15 to 2 run to take control of the game, at the half though EAC trailed by one, 40-39.  The second half saw the lead change hands 6 times with the score being tied 4 more times before a Phil Harvey layup gave Eastern the lead at 68-67 with just over 7 minutes to play.  The Monsters outscored Cochise 16-7 the rest of the way to hang on for the win.
