TEAM’s win places them firmly at the top of Pool A, on 46 points, though their lead is a tenuous two points, so they cannot afford to rest on their laurels.
Goofam just managed to eke out a win against Charlie’s Akari by two points, putting them in third equal place with Kia Orana Salon.
Kangahua were able to bounce back after a disappointing loss with a solid six-point win over Nukz Power 1, putting them in second place.
In Pool B, Matman again showed their winning form against Ohana, beating them by 29 points.
Pool C contenders Sarafui saw their five-game winning streak fall by the wayside as they were toppled by Green Machine, 71-67.
No games will be played today or next Wednesday (October 18) due to players and officials being involved in the Manea Games in Mitiaro.
