Out of halftime, the Chargers put up more of a fight, but the Barr-Reeve offens had its best quarter of the night. Pike Central scored 14 points in the third quarter — one more point than its first half total — but the Vikings scored 23. James had seven points and Bullock had six in the quarter, while Wagler scored four more points and Logan Lengacher, Chris Wittmer and Connor Swartzentruber had two points each.

Seth Swartzentruber led Barr-Reeve with seven points in the quarter. Ryan Knepp had three, Wagler scored his final basket of the night, Connor Swartzentruber and Lengacher had two points each to finish off the 77-40 victory.
