BWB  3rd Division South & West

Warwickshire  Bears 2 48

Gloucester Blazers 23

Bears 2 faced a tough battle against a Blazers side who were unbeaten and top placed in their division at the start of the game.  Taking a leaf from the Bears first game, the  Bears came out with a high intensity defence putting pressure on the Blazers  team forcing them into mistakes and only brief glimpses at the Bears basket.  With the upper hand in defence, the Bears made the Blazers errors pay by scoring freely at the Blazers  basket to go into the half time beak leading with a overwhelming lead of Bears 26 – 4 Blazers.

The Blazers came out for the second half with a determination to try not lose their unbeaten record with a full court press.  Although it slowed down the Bears attacking opportunities, the Bears continued with their impressive defensive game , seeing out the second half slightly opening the scores further between the teams and Bears  taking the game 48 – 23.

 

Coach Masterson commented ” Wow what a game.  The team were brilliant.  To hold the division leaders to only 4 points in the first half was awesome.  They played brilliant and they deserve  so much praise for their efforts today.  I’m one happy coach today.”
