(18-16) (29-9) (13-14) (23-14)

Athleta opened with a 12-2 run with points by Josiah Whitehead (198-F-86, college: Robert Morris). Depiro replied with points from Dominic Scafidi (196-F) but Athleta kept a slight advantage at the end of the first quarter 18-16. In the next period, Athleta began with a 10-0 run mainly with three pointers from David Camilleri and Roderick Vella. Athleta kept their pressure as they went on for another 12-2 run with more treys form Camilleri and Peter Shoults for a strong 47-25 lead at halftime. After the break, there was another 9-0 run by the winners as Depiro had the better ending of the period with treys by Robert Bonnici and Samuel Zammit in an 11-0 run for a 60-39 score. The last period had Athleta keeping their lead strongly as they kept Depiro at a safe distance to win the game 83-53.

In the second quarter, points from Ahlberg and Cumpstone drew Luxol nearer however, Floriana replied back with another 9-3 run to increase their lead once more. Luxol replied again this time with a strong 11-2 run which saw them taking the lead for the first time 30-29, which they kept for the interval 33-32.
