However, that was not enough, as the Ramblers found themselves down after one quarter 14-12 to the Gladiators. In the second quarter the Ramblers found a little breathing room.

The Ramblers held a slim 24-20 lead at halftime.
In the third quarter, it was more of the same, as the Ramblers put up 13 points. However, the Ramblers were outscored again in the third quarter, as the Gladiators scored 15. Calcaterra lead the way with five points in the quarter. Yet, it was Haley, knowing exactly how much time was left in the quarter. Haley was able drive the baseline, back his way in and put a shot up from the block to give the Ramblers a two point lead after three quarters. In the fourth quarter, the Ramblers were able to add on. As the game got late, the Gladiators decided to send the Ramblers to the line. Gavin Hewitt knocked down all four free throws and helped seal a 52-41 victory over the Gladiators. The Ramblers were lead by Haley with 13, Calcaterra with 11 and Hewitt with 11 points. Also scoring for the Ramblers was Bobby Hoth ( 6 points), Nicolas Santina ( 4 points), Stadt ( 3 points), Wilcox ( 3 points) and Jacob Johnson ( 1 point).
