In the final game of the Surf and Slam Tournament, second place was still on the line as the Thunder battled Team Santa Cruz. Things looked grim early as the larger Santa Cruz squad started hot and opened up a quick 11-2 lead. After a timeout, the Thunder took the floor and looked like a new team. Taking the defensive intensity up to a new level, the Thunder closed the half with a 19-4 run and held a 21-15 halftime advantage. The second half proved to be a back and forth affair, as every time the Thunder opened up the lead, TSC fought back to keep it close. In the final minute, a TSC basket closed the gap to a manageable three points, but Tyler Lynch nailed a critical three pointer to seal the win and dash any hopes of a comeback win by the hometown squad. Lynch led all Thunder scorers with 9 points, while Koby Silva scored 8 and Johan Reyes added 6. The win was a great team effort that saw every Thunder player get on the board and add several defensive highlights.

Tyler Lynch – 9
Koby Silva – 8
Johan Reyes – 6
Richard Pabalate – 5
Wayne Russell – 4
BJ Sulit – 3
Kristian Jordan - 1
