In a match between Surrey Scorchers and Cheshire Phoenix, it was Cheshire who came out on top with a convincing 105-81 victory. Scorchers started the game slowly, lacking energy and allowing Cheshire to build an early lead and gain high confidence despite only playing with seven players. However, Scorchers battled their way back into the game before half-time showing pride on the court. The second half was dominated by Cheshire as the defensive presence of Austin, Anderson, and Evans proved too much for Scorchers. Despite their efforts, Scorchers could not match the intensity of their opponents, who sealed a comfortable win.
