Gira Athleta 98
(17-27) (27-23) (21-13) (19-35)

Gzira Athleta obtained their 4th consecutive success in the BOV Knock out final after beating Falken Cynergi Virtus 98-84. It was the best match of the season with both teams reaching a high level of performance. It was Virtus first defeat of the season, actually the first one since they lost a play-offs semifinal last year. Athleta were the best team on court mixing several types of defense and sometimes opting for a full court zone press. Lee Fisher (198-F-89, college: Chicago St.) Michael Naudi (193-G/F-80) and Nicolai Lubrano won several offensive rebounds, another point which turned the game in favour of Joe Galea's side. Athleta quickly took a 5 point lead 7-2 with Naudi in fine form from the start. Virtus hit back with a David Bugeja triple and they even took the lead with points by Jacob Formosa and Chris Santo (196-F, college: St.Anselm). Athleta were back with a 10-2 run with a Naudi triple together with Fisher and Micallef as they obtained a 10 point lead 27-17. In the second quarter, Athleta's advantage grew larger with a couple of hoops by Roderick Vella and Lubrano. Formosa and Peter Shoults (168-G-85) replied for Virtus with a couple of treys but a Billy Zammit (160-PG-90) triple and hoops by Fisher kept Athleta's double figure lead. Santo netted consecutive points for the champions as Vella nailed a trey for Athleta. Virtus ended the session with a 7-0 run including a Robert Bonnici trey and at halftime Athleta's lead was down to six points 50-44. In the start of the third quarter, both teams replied to each other as Vella netted his second triple for Athleta. Virtus replied with an 11-4 run with Shoults second trey as they succeeded in going ahead for the first time 65-63 before the last quarter got underway. Athleta opened with a Lubrano triple to get the lead once more. For two times, the champions replied as Santo and Shoults gave them the advantage. Athleta hit back with a 10-2 run with more points by Fisher and Lubrano. In the ninth minute, Athleta had a 9-3 run mainly from the free-throw line as Virtus attempted to stop the clock. However, Athleta kept calm and scored the remaining free-throws to win the game 98-84 among the celebrations by the players and supporters. At the end of the game, Peter Perotti Bank of Valletta Chief Officer presented the MVP momento to Lee Fisher and the KO trophy to Athleta's captain Michael Naudi.
