David Bugeja
Starlites 50
Cynergi Depiro 119
(11-20) (10-37) (18-25) (11-37)

Starlites had already beaten Depiro twice this season including a last seconds victory in the league however this time there was no chance for them as Depiro took the match in their hands from the early stages to ensure a comfortable victory. Depiro quickly opened the match with a 10-0 as David Bugeja (180-SG-92) opened his enormous match with a couple of hoops. There was also a Robert Bonnici triple as Depiro ended the session 20-11 in front. The second period was worse for Starlites as they succumbed to Depiro's pressure in defence with Andrew Aquilina registering 10 steals. Aquilina netted a couple of treys as well as Depiro netted a 19-0 run to lead heavily at halftime 57-21. After the break Depiro kept hammering with another 13-0 run and although Starlites replied with points from Jacob Formosa (188-G-97) and Nikola Stankovic, Depiro's lead increased to 82-31. Depiro began the last quarter with a 10-0 run. They reached the century with a Bugeja basket after that Formosa sank a couple of triples for Starlites. Depiro ended the match with a 19-2 run to win 119-50 rendering the second encounter worthless.

Gzira Athleta 81
Hibernians 77
(15-20) (34-23) (12-18) (20-16)

In a very interesting match Gzira Athleta obtained a 4 point lead against Hibernians 81-77. Athleta suffered once more underneath the boards in what looks to be a weak point for them at this stage of the season, conceding a lot of offensive rebounds to their adversaries. With Spaniard Alvaro Lizaur and now Maltese Marco Matijevic combining well under the boards, Hibs opened with a 12-2 run as they took the lead after a Peter Shoults (168-G-85) triple for Athleta. In the second session, Athleta replied with a 10-2 run of their own led by Michael Naudi together with Roderick Vella and Josiah Whitehead. Hibs went in front once more but Athleta had another 7-2 run with two David Camilleri triples as they opened a six point advantage 49-43. After the break, Athleta increased their lead to 10 points 57-47 but Hibs replied once more as they went for a 13-2 run which had both sides on level terms at the end of the quarter 61-61. Athleta started well in the last session with an 11-2 run as they had treys from Shoults and Vella. Hibs didn't give up and replied with a 9-0 break that saw them reducing the gap to just one basket before Whitehead's final hoop which gave them a 4 point lead for the return match.

Gzira Athleta: M. Naudi 13, R. Vella 14, D. Camilleri 12, L. Stefanovic, P. Shoults 18, F. Mifsud Bonnici, B. Zammit, J. Bos, S. Vincic, M. G. Montaldo, J. Whitehead 24.

Floriana MCP Car Parks 74
Bupa Luxol 69
(27-18) (12-17) (15-15) (20-19)

Similar to the previous match, this was a close encounter and qualification to the semi-final is still an open battle. JP Schembri opened with a trey for Luxol with Floriana quickly replying with a 9-2 run as Chad Patus netted his first trey of the match. There were more points on each side with Pierce Cumpstone (203-F-94) and William Ahlberg scoring for Luxol but Patus and Nicola Vasovic replied for Floriana who opened a 9 point lead 27-18. In the second quarter, Luxol reduced the gap to 2 points following an 8-0 run with more Cumpstone points. Patus replied for Floriana once more as they went for the break in front 39-35. In the third quarter, Luxol first managed to level the score 41-41 and then also taking the lead for three times after a CJ Cordina triple. However a Patus trey followed by a Vasovic hoop saw Floriana ahead once more 54-50. The last quarter had Floriana keeping their advantage as they had more treys from Patus and Vasovic. Luxol went in front once more with Cordina's points however Floriana ended the match with an 8-2 run which gave them a 5 point advantage for the second match.
