Saturday's other encounter pitted PTW against Police at the same venue and the former recorded a 83-34 win.

In a late fixture, ABC, who had a below par performance in the Zone V Championships, put Tan Black to the sword, thumping them 137-45.
In Kinondoni, the league also continued on Saturday and highly fancied Oilers had to labour to earn a 46-37 win against the Outsiders.
Pazi, the former RBA League champions gunning to redeem their dented image, registered a crushing 117-34 win over brothers.
