It was a tight one early on, with just two points separating the teams for much of the first quarter.

Elgin Park vs Churchill
Both teams came out fighting, with just a point separating the two after the first quarter. It was just as tight in the second quarter — both teams were battling hard screens constantly. The second half highlighted a contrast in style. Churchill with its excellent three point shooting, and Elgin Park with it’s definitive size advantage. The Orca’s were down by almost ten before actually taking a slim one point lead late in the fourth. However, two clutch free throws at the end with just over 20 seconds left sealed the deal for Churchill. They would win by just a single point, 53-52.
Rick Hansen vs McMath
The Hurricanes vs the Wildcats did not disappoint. Both teams went for the offensive jugular right from tip off, with a boatload of points scored in the first half.
