During the fourth quarter the Hawks jumped ahead for the first time in the game with a lead of 41-39. They played a good game and the crowd was on their feet for the final few minutes. The final score was Bassano 52 - Halton 46. The third game Halton played was on Saturday afternoon against Erle River's Comets. The Hawks tried, they rallied, but in the end they lost. The final score was Erle River 71 - Halton 37.
