Fielding a full roster for the first time this season, the Stallions would face off against Sofa King Good where the #1 and #3 ranked teams would meet. The Stallions would jump out to an early 10-0 lead behind six quick points from Roger Sheung. Contributions would come from all members of the Stallions as Braedan Jones and Mark Halfknights would wreak havoc using their size and athleticism inside early. For Sofa King Good, they would not let the slow start stop them as they would chip into the lead in the middle portion of the first half. In the end the Stallions would stay hot and come out on top 89-62.

Both teams would try to feel each other out in the early stages of the game as no one could gain the upper hand. Outworkcrew would eventually edge ahead as their size at every position gave Ball So Hard problems. Luka "Bazooka" Zaharijevic and Simon Pelland would be the stars for Outworkcrew on this night leading the team. Luka would have a 19 Point and 14 Rebound evening. For Ball So Hard Brandon Hoyem and Alan Hogan led the way. In the end it was 93-66 for Outworkcrew.

Blouses and Bench Mob would battle on Court 6 both trying to improve their records to change their seeding heading into playoffs. This game was close to the end as teams traded baskets for the entire duration of the game. David Ta and Rayyaan Mohammad led Bench Mob, but it was the hot shooting of Ibrahim Warsame who hit four "3's" on the night to lead Blouses to the 76-69 win.

Ultimate Warriors would play the young Metro 1 team who put up a good fight during this game. The scrappy Metro 1 team was led by Kaelan McKnight and Anton Poburko, but Milidrag Stupar and Devon Carney proved to be too much in the end as the Ultimate Warriors secured the 56-54 win.

Academy found themselves in a close one with Humble Beast from start to finish. Academy would get a big contribution from Scott Walton leading the way against Humble Beast. Humble beast would use a balanced scoring night to battle, but in the end Academy hit their freethrows to ice the game at 78-71.

Heartbreak for Goon Squad. Cushman Skyscrapers would get a buzzer beater win as Corey Colville would knock down the shot to take the victory. Strong games from Darryl Wong and Sherman Chong were just not enough as Cushman would win 67-65.

A battle between two of the top Div II teams would end in favour of The Party. Playing from behind the whole game and missing two bigs, TTP couldn't get enough buckets to take down undefeated The Party. Maher Elusini and Matt Anza would lead TTP, but big nights from Niko Mottus and Shaun Lum would keep The Party with their perfect record. 65-54 for The Party.
