ELY faced stiff opposition from bottom of the league Rockets but came through by 32-33.

Rockets started off the better of the two teams and soon built up a commanding lead.

It wasn't until late in the first quarter that Ely started to settle and managed to finish the quarter a goal up. Mid way through the last quarter however, Ely were five goals down and heading towards their first defeat of the year.

As Ely clawed back the points, Rockets began to falter allowing Ely to steal a last minute winner and come away with the narrowest of victorious.
