Young gun Jar­rad Figg paced Bounc­ers with 35 points while Zion Laterre had 27 points for Ser­pents in their seven points loss.

In the other men’s game com­pe­ti­tion lead­ers Whirl­winds were given an almighty push by bot­tom placed Can­nons but hung on to win 70- 64 be­hind 19 point games from Ethan Betts and Charl­ton Of­fer­mans.

In the women’s cham­pi­onship di­vi­sion Hy­ats strength­ened their hold on sec­ond spot with a nar­row 60- 58 win over Hy­ats.
