Hurricanes were pipped in the final seconds by Challengers to lose by a goal in this competitive game. The game was closely contested from the out set with neither team able to take control. Establishing a narrow 3 goal lead by half time should have been enough to see the league leaders home, but Challengers fought back hard to snatch the game.

It was a disappointing result for Hurricanes who now have to ensure they win their remaining matches to have a chance of the Premier title.
