Following the main break, it seemed the Pointers were looking for a comeback, scoring early in the quarter.

However, the Clippers began to step up the pressure on the Pointers, leaving their opposition struggling to keep up, with most of their passes resulting in turnovers.

It seemed all hope was lost for the Pointers as team morale fell flat, resulting in the Clippers taking home the 13-point win.

Elsewhere, the B-Town Ballerz managed a big upset, defeating the Roosters by just nine points, while the Orl Blaks took on the Misfits and the Hornets squared off against the Redbacks.
