Akeem Scott and TyShwan Edmondson led the A's at the half with seven points apiece, while Michael Martin led all scorers with 17 points.

Brampton started the second half with a more aggressive approach and went on a surge that allowed them to cut a once 19 point lead to six points. At the two minute mark, the A's were within striking distance in which Ashton Smith drove to the basket through his defenders for two, narrowing the deficit to one. Unfortunately a three-point dagger by Sammy Zeglinski of the Storm solidified the victory amidst a great effort by the home team.
