The Sudbury Five jumped out to a first quarter lead against the KW Titans at Sudbury Arena on Thursday and didn’t look back for the rest of the game.

The win improves the Five's record to 11-9 and and moves the team to second place above the Titans in the standings.

The first quarter was pretty back and forth, with the Five ultimately outscoring the Titans 34-33. Braylon Rayson picked up 10 points on the quarter to lead Sudbury in scoring, with Jeremy Harris picking up nine points and Jaylen Bland earning seven.

Quarter two wasn't as close but Sudbury continued putting the pressure on and hit their buckets with regularity. Sudbury's shooting percentage was above 50 per cent on threes and field goals, which saw them outshoot KW and pick up 31 points to the Titans 24. Jason Calliste led the team in scoring, picking up 10 points.

The Titans found their offence again in the third quarter, and while Sudbury out-pointed them, the Five only picked up 28 points to KW's 26. Rayson once again led the Five in scoring this quarter, earning eight points. 

The quarter ended with Sudbury up by 10, 93-83.

Whatever success KW found in the third evaporated by the fourth quarter in the face of a surging Five offence and some solid rebounding in Sudbury's paint. Jaylen Bland alone scored 12 points in the fourth to lead the Five. Sudbury's shooting percentage once again seriously outpaced KW and paved the way for the final score of 127-104 for Sudbury.

The Five hit the road now for a Sunday afternoon rematch against the Titans.
