It is now the business end of the season and the Tigers play the Hawks in their Quarter Final match up. Game 1 is at the Beaton Park Basketball Stadium in front of 2500 screaming Hawks fans.

Despite the crowd being against the Tigers they got off to a flyer and hit 35 first quarter points. While this was impressive enough they also kept the Hawks to 17 points to open up an 18 point quarter time lead.

The Hawks won the next two quarters but by four points each quarter to reduce the lead at three quarter time to 10 points.

Still within reach the Hawks put up a gallant effort in the last quarter but come up short against a Tigers team that had two players shooting over 60% from the field.

The Tigers win by 12 points and lead the three game series 1 – 0 with the next two games to be played on their home court.

Stats Highlights:

Andrew Gaze: 37 points, 5 rebounds (all defensive), 5 steals & 7 assists

Landard Copeland: 36 points

Mark Bradtke: 14 points and 16 rebounds (12 defensive)
