Boyden-Hull's last ditch inbound pass was knocked away by the hustling Dutchmen and the only thing left for the Comet squad to do was look toward their showdown with Sioux Center. The Comets enjoyed a slight three-point margin with approximately three minutes gone in the fourth period, but they would manage just one more point the rest of way, making it tough to sustain a lead a~inst a quick, aggressive Dutch team.
