JKL Dolphins managed just three points from the bench, and were out-rebounded 44-56, but just did enough to down Power.

It’s the fifth loss for Power who were earlier beaten by Nam Blazers, UCU Canons (2) and City Oilers.

The win, on the back of a 62-47 victory over Our Saviour on Saturday, is the seventh for JKL Dolphins this season.
