Gira Athleta 77
Falken Cynergi Virtus 89
(21-28) (10-20) (22-21) (24-20)


Athleta ended a run of 14 consecutive finals as they lost their second encounter to champions Falken Cynergi Virtus 89-77. It was a hard season for Joe Galea's men as they had to struggle till the end with missing players and injuries. For their last crucial game, Roderick Vella was missing again and they had to do without Michael Naudi as well. Athleta had the opening points but Virtus replied with treys by Peter Shoults and David Bugeja (180-SG-92). Athleta replied with a 7-2 run with points from Matthew Gouder and Lee Fisher (198-F-89, college: Chicago St.) Virtus took the lead once more, but Athleta replied again with an 8-2 run. This was the last time they were in front as champions ended the period with a 10-0 run including a Jacob Formsa triple. In the second period, Virtus went on for a strong 13-2 run with more treys by Formosa and Chris Santo (196-F, college: St.Anselm). Their aggressive defence was too much for Athleta and at the interval Virtus were leading 48-31. After the break, Fisher netted consecutive points for Athleta however on the other side Santo had his share of points as well as Virtus maintained their comfortable advantage. Shawn Pace and David Bugeja netted treys for Virtus as they went for the last quarter leading 69-53. Athleta's last effort in the final session saw them putting a 13-0 run with more Fisher points and a Zammit trey. They managed to reduce the lead to just 6 points 66-72 but Virtus replied with two 7-2 runs to secure a winning advantage once more to make it to the final for the second consecutive year.
