Caribou scored just six points in the third quarter, but that was good enough to expand their lead to nine points as they shut down the Eagles holding them scoreless in the period.
In the final stanza, Caribou scored four unanswered points to move to 21-8 with 4:19 remaining in the game. That margin would prove to be enough, as Ellsworth finished out the game with an 8-0 run but they simply ran out of time and fell to Caribou by five points.
