Ottawa, ON. - The Brampton A's lose to Ottawa 111-97, bringing their league leading record to 11-5, while Ottawa improves to 9-7.

The Brampton A's visited our Nations Capital to take on the Ottawa SkyHawks at the Canadian Tire Centre. The SkyHawks wasted no time getting a early 15-8 lead on the A's, led by Justin Tubbs who ended the game with 21 points. Brampton forward Kevin Francis continued his high energy and hit play off the bench with some key offensive rebounds and baskets. Francis led the A's with 10 rebounds.

The second quarter was very competitive as both teams got their offenses in motion with a fast paced affair. The SkyHawks scored 29 points and the A's scored 28. The SkyHawks had many second chance points in the paint, with offensive rebounds by Terrell Baines and Jermaine Johnson, who both ended the game with 10 rebounds. The Hawks were leading 54-47 going into the half.

The A's came out on fire in the second half as they scored 30 points in the quarter, led by the hot three point shooting of A's guard Cedric Moodie. Moodie led the A's in scoring with 22 points and 4 three pointers. The A's cut down Ottawa's lead to five points as the score was 81-76 going into the fourth quarter.

The A's could not keep up their momentum in the fourth quarter as their shots were not falling and their ball movement was lacking. The A's shot 39% from the field with a uncharacteristic 10 assists to their 33 field goals made. The SkyHawks won the quarter 29-21, and ultimately the final with a score of 111-97.

Ryan Anderson had the game high with 28 points on 21 shots.
