The game started off very quick paced clearly surprising Div 2 with frequent baskets being made from Lapwings as soon as the ball was tipped. Hatters continued to try and break down their offence, however, defensive errors allowed them to win the first quarter 11-22. In the second quarter, more effort was put into stopping the ball which allowed Hatters to draw some fouls out of the opposition and good baskets. Rebounding also began to improve meaning less second chances to put the ball up. The first half ended 21-33 to Lapwings.
Hatters were still determined and continued with their efforts to stop the ball, however offensively, long passes were intercepted several times allowing the opposition to fast break sometimes. Despite this, Div 2 continued trying to push the ball down court with a few successful baskets. In the last quarter, Hatters had a last push trying to push up on Lapwings and were able to win the last quarter but unfortunately lost 53-61.
