Holy Family led early on as the Tigers compiled a 9-3 lead after freshman Hunter Wysocki (Colts Neck, N.J./Colts Neck) scored a layup at the 13:47 mark of the first half. 
However, Le Moyne quickly erased the Tigers lead and used a 30-4 rally over the next ten minutes to lead by as many as 20 points.  A jumper by senior Gamal Mohamed gave the Dolphins a 33-13 with 3:48 to play in the half.
