Thursday night Collins only had 15 but the game was still rather lopsided as the Blazers took a 60-19 victory.
Yet it was progress for the Red Devils since Ritchie won the first game 86-20.

Dylan Beall backed Collins with 10 points. No other Blazer hit double figures but Logan Reed added seven and Shane Davis and Zarek Napier had six each.
