Another large crowd of mostly Fig Tree fans came out to witness the match-up between the two former champions. Fig Tree got off to a good start and ended the first quarter up 30-29. However Hitters responded with a surge in the 2nd quarter to take a comfortable 57-47 lead. The 3rd quarter was more of the same as the much younger Hitters were able execute at a much higher level than their much older opponents who seemed worn and beat . The 3rd quarter ended with Hitters up 78-70. Fig Tree made a last quarter run and closed the lead and came within 4 points of the Hitters before Tamboura Caines received a technical foul and totally reversed the momentum of the Fig Tree. It was all down hill for Fig Tree from that point onwards.
The game ended with 111-99 victory for Hitters. Daryl Lewis Led the way for Hitters with 25 pts, 6 rebs , 5 assists. He was supported well by Duane Willock who had 21 pts and 14 rebs.
