The Blue Devils held a 10-point lead at halftime, but Niagara Falls went on a run and cut into the lead, making it a two-point game entering the final eight minutes. However, Victor outscored the Wolverines 23-18 in the fourth quarter to secure the victory.

Griffen Hopkins netted a game-high 21 points to lead three Blue Devils in double figures. Nick Leonard notched 15 points, and Garrett Clarr poured in 13.
