It was the third game in the best of three finals.
St. George’s won the first; St. Paul’s came back to win the second and so the third game in the best of three, was played on the evening of Tuesday 9th August, at the Church Ground Basketball court.
As expected, it was a ding-dong battle from start to finish.
However, as the seconds ticked away in the final quarter, the St. George’s players appeared to raise the white flag of surrender.
