With Three rivers missing a few key players for this clash. The home side started off brightly picking up the intensity where they left off from their last game.

In the second quarter St Charles came out again keeping up the pressure and continuing to build their lead.

Defense in the second quarter helped STC pressure Three Rivers into a lot of turnovers leading to fast break scores. However STC began to slack on the defensive end by the end of the quarter, this is where Three Rivers took advantage and continued their fight to climb back and shorten the lead. Three Rivers were still fighting, however they could not keep up with the intensity. STC ended the second quarter leading 47-26.

In the second half it was obvious STC came out with some more fire as they kept the 3rd quarter trying to extend their lead and were able to extend in the 3rd quarter to 70-39. J. Reeve was the leading scorer for Three Rivers, putting up 16 points, doing everything he could to lead his team and make a comeback win.

Joshua Akinibiyi added “Today our main goal was to work together as a team on both ends of the floor holding each other accountable for poor effort levels, game plan execution and active communication. There is always room for improvement but pleased with our ball movement and extra passes. However we have to take better care of the ball at times. The scoring leaders for STC were Abiodun Adedo with 17 points, Daljang Wol and Franco Jardiel with an efficient 14 points and Justin Wickham added 12 points.
