Jupiter 48, Gems 47
WITH a new line up due to player unavailability, Jupiter started slowly, allowing Gems to take a 13 -10 lead at the end of the first quarter.
Jupiter made a change at GD but the match remained tight, as Gems extended their lead to 25 - 20 by half time.
A change at GK and later an enforced change at GD didn’t affect Jupiter’s focus, as they clawed their way back into the game to reduce Gems’ lead to 36 - 33 at the end of the third period.
The final quarter saw Gems under constant pressure, as Jupiter snatched victory in the final seconds, 48 - 47.
