New Caledonia - Guam 47:31
New Caledonia recorded the second consecutive victory at the Oceania championship held in Saipan. Earlier today they held off Guam to improve at 2-1 record. Guam suffered the third loss and slipped at 1-3 record in the standings.
The game turned into a physical battle as the teams concentrated on defense. A low-scoring affair saw New Caledonia grab an 11:7 advantage after ten minutes. Guam adjusted their defense in the second quarter outrebounding the opponents 20:15 but had little profit out of the fact. Guam sank just 3/26 from the field and lost the quarter 6:15. Guam fought bravely in the third stanza as they managed to limit New Caledonia to just 7 points and clipped the deficit. But the margin still read double digits and New Caledonia cruised to the victory at the end.
Clarissa Passa and Yolande Luepak secured 11 points apiece for New Caledonia. Diana Moutry had 8 points and 11 rebounds for the winning side. Derin Santos answered with 10 points and 7 rebounds for Guam. Brianna Benito notched 6 points and 7 rebounds in defeat.
New Caledonia will face New Zealand for the second overall spot on Thursday.

New Caledonia: Clarissa Passa 11, Yolande Luepak 11, Diana Moutry 8+11 boards
Guam: Derin Santos 10, Brianna Benito 6
