As usual, the North Province teams were unable to defeat the best squad from the South in the Territorial Championships semifinals. The Finals will be a rematch of the South Province finals as Vallee-du-tir will play AS6km for the men trophy and AS6km will face SS Independente for the women title.
In the men cup, the game between South Province's champion Vallee-du-tir and Voh BB was like a clinic. The players from Vallee were able to use this game as a training session and worked on their tactics. They easily won this game 83-38. In the second game, AS6km faced Poindimie with one rule: avoid injuries!
"I preffered to told my players to play a smoother game because Bourail Hall's court is very slippery" said Jean-Marc Delaveuve, AS6km coach "We won the game 74-49 and we are not very tired before the final where we will meet again JSVDT".
In the ladies cup, AS6km made the trip to the North for ... nothing. Their opponent from the North, Koniambo, decided not to show up and lost the game by forfeit. For SS Independente, the game was harder than expected. Tired by an exhausting South Province playoff, SSI had some troubles to deal with Poindimie but the team managed to secure a 59-47 win.
The Territorial Finals will be played in a best-of-three serie.
JS Vallee-du-tir - Voh BB: 83-38
AS 6km - Poindimie: 74-49
AS 6km - Koniambo: AS6km wins by forfeit
SS Independente - Poindimie: 59-47
