Island Storm vs. Halifax Rainmen

The Island Storm continued their dominance in the Atlantic Division, crushing Halifax by a score of 116-110.

Joe Salerno's men, who are now 10-6, used perimeter shooting to outdo a tired Rainmen side by going 50% (11/22) from three point land.

Stefan Barrett lead the game with 30 points in a losing effort. His Rainmen now sink to a record of 7-8, as they prepare for two weeks of road games starting on Friday in Brampton.

The Island Storm will be looking for their fourth straight win when they take on Moncton at the Moncton Coliseum on Sunday.

London Lightning vs. Windsor Express

The London Lightning pulled away late in the 2nd quarter to take a demanding 107-85 win over Windsor at Budweiser Gardens.

London, who are now 11-6 on the year, out-played the 11-4 Express for most of the game thanks to John Hart's 23 points.

The Lightning will now enjoy the rest of their five game home-stand, including a double-header next weekend against Halifax and Saint John.

Windsor will host Brampton on Friday.

Brampton A's vs. Mississauga Power

The Brampton A's won yet another Battle of Peel Saturday, beating the Mississauga Power 114-111 at home.

Brampton battled back from being down by 19 points at halftime to moving to a record of 7-9 on the season. Cavell Johnson led the A’s with 25 points, while Tom Granado grabbed a game-high 13 rebounds.

The Power, who have now lost six games, move down to a record of 5-9.

These two clubs will now gear-up for a rematch in Mississauga on Tuesday.
