Wellington led 11-7 after one quarter, and switched to a full court press to start the second quarter and that made the difference. The Knights went on a 8-0 run in the first minute of the quarter, and scored 21 unanswered points before halftime. Mulvane got a field goal with a few second left in the half, and Wellington led 34-9 at the half.
