The elimination game between STA and Collingwood went down to the wire with STA hanging on to win 64-61 in a game that featured numerous lead changes and plenty of 3's!
The game was close throughout the first half with neither team able to pull away from their opponent. STA led at the half 34-33 and it was clear that neither team was ready to pack their bags just yet. The Cavaliers came out strong in the second half taking a 7 point lead late in the 3rd quarter before STA went on an 11-0 run to take the lead 53-50 at the end of the third quarter. As the fourth quarter went on STA was able to build a 8 point lead with just over 3 minutes remaining but Collingwood closed it to 3 with just under 2 minutes to go on a 3 from Jordan Narwal.
STA was able to make enough free throws down the stretch to seal the deal winning 65-61. The Fighting Saints were led by Player of the Game Mico Carrion (pictured below) who led all scorers with 21 points.
Conrad Tomaszkiewicz of STA had 15 points while Jaden Narwal and Jovin Narwal had 16 and 15 points respectively for the Cavaliers.
