The Black Sharks hunting in familiar territory came back hard at the Knights who were making a game of it, putting up a strong defence. The see saw third segment ended with the Black Sharks retaking the lead to end in the ascendency 35-32.
The final segment saw the Black Sharks finding their range, making more frequents raids. However, the Knights were prepared for the battle and put up a stern resistance. However, the Sharks prevailed for the 46-40 win.
