The travelling Sudbury Five took a 125-114 loss to the KW Titans at the Aud on Thursday night.

The first quarter saw KW jump out to an early 10-point lead thanks to some good offence from the likes of Joel Kindred and strong defensive rebounding from Shakwon Barrett.

The Five had a bit of trouble finding their feet offensively in the opening frame, but the defence managed to contain some of the Titans drive, and the quarter ended with KW up 30-20.

The Five came out for the second quarter hungry for buckets, with Braylon Rayson, back in a Five uniform, opening the scoring by draining a free throw. 

Baskets from Dexter Williams Jr., Jaylen Bland and Georges Serresse early in the quarter seemed to give the 

Five the fire they were looking for. 

Sudbury went on to score 35 points in the second to the Titans 26 points, and the teams headed to the bench with the Titans lead slashed to 56-55.

In the third, the Five's offensive slipped a little, that or the Titans defenders stepped up their game, and KW held Sudbury to just 20 points to their own 35, and the quarter ended with Kitchener having extended its lead considerably, 91-75.

Sudbury would find a bit of its fire for the fourth quarter but by that point they had a lot of ground to make up on the Titans. The Five would outscore KW in the final frame 39-34, but the Kings of the Underground just couldn't drain enough shots to turn the tide, and the game ended 125-114 for KW.

The loss sees the Five's record sitting at .500, 9-9, good enough third place.

The Five are back in action at home on Sunday against the Windsor Express. Game time is 2 p.m.
