PETALING JAYA: A first-quarter blitz from Miri Firehouse was enough to dethrone NS Matrix 67-60 in their third-fourth placing match of the Maba/Matrix Agong Cup at the Maba Stadium in Kuala Lumpur.
Nicknamed the “Avengers”, the side certainly wanted to end their campaign on a sweet note and went out with guns blazing after leading 19-10 in the first quarter.
In the second quarter, it was evenly matched as both sides scored 11-11 but the momentum tilted towards Matrix when they aced the third quarter by scoring 22 points against Firehouse’s 22.
However, Firehouse were able to douse the fire of Matrix to pull through for victory.
Ho Yeow Loong was the toast for Firehouse as he scored 15 points, took down four rebounds and assisted three times in the match.
