At one point the Falcons were down as mush as 15 points, but were able to bring it back with in five as they trailed 26-21 heading into the locker room at halftime.
Ethan Martin was the leading scorer in the first half with 11 points as Payton Wiemer had six as the Falcons made some great half time adjustments as they started the second half off strong and never looked back.
Whatever head coach, Jeff Podgornik said at halftime must have worked as the Falcons came out strong and picked up the intensity as they went on to out score South Shore 36-16 as they went on to a 57-42 victory at home.
Martin lead the way in scoring with 24 points as Wiemer finish with 14 points. Alex Brost had a break out performance as the senior stepped up to finish with 13 points to help lead the Falcons to the non-conference victory at home.
