At the end of the half Reformers had a 2 point lead with the score at 28 – 26.In the third, Warriors guard and former Sprite ball star, Ollenu was reinserted with a heavily bandaged left hand following an injury he sustained in the second quarter.

This became a talking point for fans even after the game had ended.The third quarter ended with Warriors up by 5 points – 47 – 42. Reformers began the fourth quarter with a three-pointer and took over the game but managed to lead with only 4 points with about 2 minutes to go.
