Then, behind eight points from Joe Akers, Pine-Eagle battled back to pull within 18-14 at the break.

Akers hit the first basket of the second quarter, but Joseph then went on to outscore the Spartans 21-10 in the period to build its lead to 39-24 at halftime. 

Akers finished the first half with 14 points, but no other Spartans scored more than two points.
