The game had a very big importance for fourth-ranked Thor Thorl as it allowed them to take a leadership position. Thor Thorl defeated 11th ranked IR in Thorlakshofn 87-70. The game was mostly controlled by Thor Thorl. IR managed to win third quarter 22-21. But it was not enough to take a lead and get a victory that evening. They made 26-of-31 free shots (83.9 percent) during the game. 30 personal fouls committed by IR helped opponents get some easy free throw opportunities. Americans were the main players on the court. Guard Benjamin Smith (178-87, college: Jacksonville) stepped up and scored 26 points and 7 rebounds (made all of his twelve free throws !!!) for the winners and forward David Jackson (201-88, college: Penn St.) chipped in 18 points and 12 rebounds. At the losing side guard Eric Palm (188-87, college: McKendree) responded with 38 points (!!!). IR's coach Jon Arnar Ingvarsson rotated ten players seeing no chance for a win.

American forward Aaron Broussard (195-90, college: Seattle) nailed a double-double by scoring 15 points, 19 rebounds, 6 assists and 5 steals for the winning side and Johann Olafsson accounted for 23 points. Grindavik's coach Sverrir Sverrisson allowed to play the deep bench players saving starting five for next games.
