Ellsworth had a good game plan, try to limit the scoring, keep the game close and hit their outside shots, but Hermon was quick on defense, pressuring Ellsworth's shooters and not letting them have the time to catch and shoot from beyond the 3-point arc. Ellsworth only managed 3 3-pointers in the contest.
