Eagan went up against Minneapolis Southwest in the Breakdown Fall Basketball League. The game got off to a quick start as each team traded baskets in the opening minutes of the game.

Southwest passed the ball around the three-point line to take time off the clock. They wanted to get Eagan out of the game.

Eagan did a good job of disrupting Southwest in the offensive end. Both teams traded baskets throughout the first half.

At halftime the score was Eagan 33 and Southwest 28.

Southwest's Tyler Eric Wayne Porch was all over the floor. He got his teammates involved in the plays and was a vocal leader on the floor. Porch knew where his teammates were on the court at all times and got them involved in the offense.

The score went back and forth early in the second half as both teams traded baskets. Neither team went on a run.

Southwest didn't back down from the pressure that Eagan applied to them throughout the game. Eagan made it difficult for Southwest to get a good look at the basket. Eagan was also able to get the Southwest guards flustered as the pressure they applied kind of bothered the guards. The Southwest guards didn't back down from the pressure as they battled on every play and looked to get the ball to their teammates.

The game was close throughout and it came down to the wire. Eagan came away with the 63-62 victory over Southwest.
