Having already played Harriers in a thrilling match up this had the potential to be another fantastic game, and it did not disappoint! Harriers were first on the board taking a quick 4-0 advantage, Kings then replied with two points from Joe. The quarter saw both sides very evenly matched with Reece scoring 10 straight points for the Kings which would see the start of a very impressive shooting run from him. That saw the quarter end 9-12 with the Kings in front.
The second quarter was a bit quieter in terms of points scored with both sides still evenly matched. Reece continued where he left off scoring the Kings first two points. Harriers were keeping up though and squared the match 14 apiece. Joe then scored two more for the Kings and Reece also added another two more. Again the sides could not be split and that saw the half end with a score of 18-18 with it all to play for.
The second half was much of the same story. Reece again added two more to the Kings total before Harriers sparked into life scoring six straight points. Joe then added four more points for the Kings and Peter with two which saw Harriers also reply with two of their own. Joe
then hooked in a three pointer for the referee to disallow it with the 24 seconds passing by.
At the end of the third Harriers were edging it 26-28.
With it really all to play for Wayne kicked of the scoring for the Kings. Harriers kept coming back though scoring four points with the score very close at 28-32. Peter added two more points for the Kings but was unable to connect from the line on a three point play. A very intense last 2 minutes saw Ryan score his first of the game with the scores locked at 32-32.
In the last 30 seconds of the match Harriers scored the winning basket to take the game 34- 32. A very impressive team performance from the Kings who continue to improve in a very tough season.
