In the next period, Virtus began with another 10-2 run with Pace and David Camilleri (SG) triples. Athleta replied with a short 7-2 run however this did not last long since Virtus made another 13-2 run to enjoy a strong advantage at halftime 46-27. After the break, Athleta manage to reduce the lead with a 13-4 run including a Billy Zammit triple and points from Naudi and Lee Fisher. However, champions replied once more as they went for an 11-2 run with a Peter Shoults trey and they kept their strong advantage 65-46 for the last period.
