The second quarter again was a close game with nothing really separating the two teams again scoring basket for basket. The Bears went into half time with a slight lead 27 – 24 Harriers The third quarter was the major turning point in the game with the Bears toughening up their defence and forcing Harriers into mistakes and scoring from the turnover ball at the Harriers basket. The fourth quarter started with Bears in a strong lead 40 – 25. The Harriers tried to force Bears into mistakes but the Bears kept their heads and saw out the game winning 51 – 33 .
