The second half saw Scott High quickly take the lead on a goal by off an assist by Henry. Then scored an insurance goal late off an assist by Babb.

“We did a much better job of finishing in the second half,” Scott High coach Eric Henry said. “We were watching too much in the first half. We were waiting for people to finish when we should've been crashing the goal.”

Henry credited the play of Babb, Henry, Garrett and Roberts for doing “a really good job of playing off each other … it was pretty soccer on the offensive end.”

The defense was the tone-setter, though, Henry said, with and Dominic Lewis playing good soccer in the back.
