The A's tapped the hot shooting hand of forward Richard Amardi, who finished the night with 19 points, going 3/7 from 3PT. A's forward Tyrone Watson also had an effective night, tallying 17 points and 10 rebounds. River Lion's forward Logan Stutz was effective for the home team, scoring 20 points and grabbing 9 rebounds.

The Orangeville A's (10-23) took to the Meridian Centre to face off against their Central Division opponents the Niagara River Lions (14-20). With only 7 games left in the regular season, the A's were looking to gain a game on Niagara in their late season push for 3rd place.

The 1st quarter proved to be high scoring for both teams, with Niagara leading 22-18 over the A's with 5:40 left in the 1st. With help from Jameson Tipping's perfect 2/2 from 3PT, Orangeville closed out the quarter with a 33-32 lead. Tipping finished the night with 9 points in his first game back from injury (3/4 from 3PT).

The A's would move on to take their biggest lead of the game in the 3rd quarter, reaching a 13 point advantage at the 4:46 mark, 51-38. After starting the quarter with a lengthy scoring run, Orangeville would allow Niagara to tie the game before the end of the 1st half, 54-54.

Orangeville kept their foot on the pedal for the final 12 minutes, with Justin Moss getting two separate and-one plays in the 4th. Moss would finish the night with a respectable 13 points and 6 rebounds. The final quarter of tonight's game was closely contested, seeing Richard Amardi foul out of the game in the final two minutes. The A's would eventually win the game on the road, 125-116.

Key Game Notes:
