The period witnessed an exciting exchange of scoring, with a total of 49 points shared between the teams. Although the Rebels managed to narrow the gap to 12 points at one stage, a crucial two-point shot from Savannah Wilkinson extended the Lions’ lead to 14 points at halftime.

The Lions continued to control the pace of the game in the second half, leaving the Rebels struggling to keep up. Despite Essex’s efforts to mount a comeback, they couldn’t match the intensity set by the Lions. As the game progressed, London widened the gap, entering the final quarter with a commanding 23-point lead. The Rebels, facing an uphill battle and fatigued, found themselves unable to mount a significant challenge in the closing stages.
