Caledonia Pride 57-56 Newcastle Eagles

Having lost to Eagles by a large margin just 2 weeks ago, Pride knew that a different level of performance was needed to compete with their most local rivals and a different level is what we got! From the opening tip, Pride showed hunger and intensity, building a 22-13 lead by the end of the 1st quarter. Eagles brought it back to just a 2 point gap by halftime, which set up a very tense 2nd half. With the lead exchanged multiple times through the the 3rd and 4th quarters, it was Pride who did just enough to regain the narrowest of leads late in the game and held on in the closing seconds to secure a first win of the 21/22 campaign.
