Half way through the 2nd period, the Hornets found a way to slow the Wolverines by sitting in a 2-3 and denying the drive and the close range shots. By the end of the period the Wolverines started hitting their shots making the score at half Damascus 15 Watkins Mill 25.

During halftime, the Damascus HS Varsity Poms preformed their routine.
