The third quarter saw Spintex Knights consolidate their dominance, extending their lead to 55-27. Head coach Selorm Thomas called upon his experienced players, including the impressive James Amotoe, who found his scoring touch and made key contributions to the team's offensive output.

Determined to finish strong, the Knights intensified their efforts in the final quarter. Their cohesive teamwork and relentless defensive pressure proved too much for Ghana Police Service to handle, as Spintex Knights sealed the victory with a final score of 71-45.

The Assistant Coach Elinam Justice of Spintex Knights expressed his team's unwavering commitment to securing the top spot in the league. While acknowledging the team's brilliance in the first quarter, he emphasized that there is still room for improvement and that they aim to deliver their best basketball throughout the season.
