The St. Matthew Tigers went into their game against the Canterbury Chargers on Friday hoping to avenge a 15-point loss to Canterbury two days previous, and for the better part of four quarters they were doing just that.

The Tigers were leading 65-58 with 1:16 left in the game when disaster struck. The Chargers scored eight points in five seconds and before the Tigers knew what hit them their seven point lead had gone up in smoke.

Moe Abou sparked the outburst with a three point basket. The Tigers then turned the ball over on back to back plays, alllowing the Chargers to tie the game on a pair of easy layups and then take the lead when the shooter was fouled on the second shot.

Other than a brief moment in the second quarter, it was the first time the Chargers led in the entire game.

The Tigers were unable to recover from the sudden turn of events and the Chargers extended their lead to seven points to win going away 73-66.

Abou led all scorers with 36 points. Ayub Tura added 12 points for the Chargers, including four three-pointers, and Galed Awad poured in 11.

The Tigers top scorer was Keonte Mouaga with 19 points. Francis Kazadi scored 16 points and Peter Thomas added 13.
