In the second section there was a team on the court and this was the place. The run by Silvio Santander executed an impenetrable defense allowing only 8 points in the quarter. While in attack with Penka Aguirre and Mainoldi drew clear difference in the game and the score and reached half-time, leading by 37-19.

In the first minutes of the third stage and the duo Aguirre-Battle, Quimsa achieved the maximum difference of the meeting to be 43-21. Gimnasia reacted, stood firm in defense and on attack complicated by the Aguerre triples and an unstoppable De Los Santos discounting from the difference and reaching the last stage of the game losing, 51-40.

The last stage was close and well-marked for the teams. Patagonian found offensive answers from Nicolas De Los Santos became the trump card of the visit. For their part Quimsa, continued to defend hard and finally closed the match with Mainoldi to stay with a barbarian triumph and thus put the final series 1-0.
