The Eagles owned a huge advantage from the foul line, making 39 of 45 (87 percent) free throw attemtps, while the Chiefs (3-3) went just 13 of 23 (57 percent) from the charity stripe. Benedictine led 35-29 at the intermission before a high-scoring second half resulted in a 80-all tie at the end of regulation.
