The Falcons opened up an eight-point advantage, 42-34, but Gallatin whittled it away late. Carter Dahlke put Gallatin ahead late in the fourth quarter, but Anthony Schacht forced overtime from the foul line.

Gallatin had a shot to win in the first overtime but missed as time expired before it outscored Skyview 12-3 in the second overtime period.
