vs

The top two teams met in County Tyrone in what turned out to be a day for all seasons, with balmy sunshine weather one minute and torrential downpour the next, leading to both teams having to adapt their playing styles to the conditions. Belfast Redbacks scored the first goal, and the game swung back and forth with Leeside Lions prevailing in the end by five points (60-55) and therefore clinching the top spot in the ladder and a place in the Grand Final.
