Longdenville scored 17 points in the period while holding their opponents to 12 to take a 46-40 advantage heading into the final quarter.

The last ten minutes were full of action as the teams went at each other but in the end home team eased to victory as they were able to outscore Enterprise 23-17.

Longdenville, who have now won three in a row, were led by Tyson Gangaraway with 16 points. He got valuable support from Joel Morgan and Elton Crichlow with 14 and 13 points respectively.

Meanwhile, Devon Waddell scored a league-high 48 points to pilot Palo Seco to a 73-67 upset win over Siparia at Bennette Village Basketball Court, Santa Flora in their South Sector I match. The win halted Siparias six-game winning streak.

Siparia, who dominated Palo Seco 71-64 in December at Irwin Park, trailed in all four quarters of the contest as Waddle took it to the visitors.
