Mimi Williams led the NDN Gunners with 15 points in another solid team win.
In the second game of action the Lemon Drops held on to win their second game of the season in dramatic fashion after nearly blowing a double digit lead.

Healthy Buffalo made a spirited comeback attempt, led behind the offensive attack of team newcomer Aaliyah Dunbar (16 points). But it was too little, too late as the Lemon Drops would advance to 2-1 and Healthy Buffalo would fall to 1-2.
