Medfield placed another point on the board, but Dover-Sherborn answered back with their last goal of the evening. The half closed 15-2 with Medfield in the lead. 

Silencing DS for the entire second half, Medfield tapered down their scoring and placed six goals split between both quarters.  The game came to a close with Medfield in the lead 21-2.
