Most of the game was played under the hoops with the teams combining for 82 points from in the paint. They also didn’t take advantage of turnovers sent their way as the teams had a total of six points from turnovers.

Scarborough had 15 second-chance points while Guelph had two and the Nighthawks had 27 fast-break points while the Shooting Stars had 13.

The game was the second of three consecutive road games for the Nighthawks. They’re to play the Niagara River Lions in Niagara Saturday before hosting the Montreal Alliance Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Sleeman Centre.
