Q1 A spirited first quarter saw the Bisons race ahead to lead with a quick fire succession of threes. Towers worked hard on defense with patient offense to keep the deficit to 9 - Bisons lead 23-14.

Q2 Fired up, Towers took the Bison by the horn so to speak and with fantastic team play, a scoring surge by Towers P Barker and a timely 3 by M Gallagher, Towers lead briefly until a Bison layup snatched the lead back, Bisons lead 34-32.

Q3 Bisons take the third quarter as they did from the tip, with a flurry of 3 pointers and increased their lead to 10 - Towers unwilling to give in with unremitting defense and with the scoring now coming from Towers C Campbell, Towers close the deficit to a single point - Bisons 49 Towers 48.

Q4 Early foul trouble for two of the Bisons meant a bit of freedom for Towers and they took full advantage, using C McQuaid to notch up some early points. Bisons fought back which led to opportunities from the free throw line for Towers which they converted to take the win, despite the characteristic noise distraction the Bison followers could throw up. Final score Towers 69 Bisons 64
