Jones went in for two and teammate Daquan Brickhouse made a drive into the paint for two points. Port Chester realized early on that they were in trouble and called for a 30-second time out. Port Chester returned from the break motivated with Henriquez making a play for the basket however, intercepted by Red Devils Ralph Watts to pass to Watson for two.
