The game was a tale of two halves. Lowell came out firing early as they hit their first three shots to take a 7-0 lead just a minute into the game. However, Lowell's outside shots stopped falling and Lowell's drives to the basket were contested by Woodside's huge frontline. Woodside did not do any better. Despite holding a huge size advantage over the smaller Lowell team, Woodside struggled to finish inside and the game was tied at 20-20 at halftime.

The second half was a different story. Lowell went on a 6-0 run to extend to a 35-27 lead with a minute left in the third quarter. Woodside responded by going on a 16-4 run bridging the third and fourth quarters to take a 43-39 lead with 1:53 left in the game.

Lowell hung tough and was down by 3 points late in the game. After a time-out, Lowell worked the ball around and nailed a three pointer with 5.1 seconds left to tie the game at 45-45. The Cardinals joy would be short lived as Woodside would make the game winning layup seconds later.

With the game complete, both teams preseason schedules are complete. Lowell will open the Academic Athletic Association season on January 8th, 2014. They will take on the San Francisco International Huskies. The game will be held at Lowell High School at 4 PM. Woodside will open PAL play on January 8th, 2014 as well. They will take on the Hillsdale Knights. The game will be held at Woodside High School at 6 PM.
