As the ball was throw up WHSG won the tip off and ran straight down the court for a lay-up and scored four of them put them into the lead 8-0 to WHSG. After a time out Eastwood was straight back into action with Cornell scoring, this put Eastwood sprits high as soon after another basket was scored by Coughlan and with excellent defence from Pearson the board for WHSG stood at a standstill the only thing which was moving was the fails as Searle brought up the ball the same fail kept being done. As a couple of seconds left on the court Stacey did a lovely pass to Cornell scored the final basket for that quarter. With WHSG excellent defence they were able to win that quarter 8-6 to WHSG.
Second quarter kicked off with a good start for Eastwood as Cornell scored 4 baskets in a row then it was the turn was WHSG to fight back as they scored to lay-ups in a row and a free throw making the score 14-14 to Eastwood. A sub was made Stacey for Chloe Taber, the court was just going backwards and forwards for a bit until Taber lighten up the court with a fantastic shot not even touching the sides moved the score board up. Once again this kicked Eastwood off with Coughlan scoring a basket and not long after Cornell scored another 2 baskets in a row leaving the game at 13-20 to Eastwood.
