Sharks II continue their winning streak!!

Dartford traveled to Gravesend to face GNG Tigers tonight. With a nearly complete squad after return of veteran Julian Torreggianni (AKA Todge) and Alex, and again the loan addition of big George, the team faced their first big test of the season in a match that, as history shows, always is a close game.

After a red hot opening quarter with 3 pointers by Kayzi and Sean swooshing in, the Tigers got in their stride more and the half time score of 31 -29 said it all. It was a tight game. With the Tigers going in a zone and Sharks II outside shooting slumping, the half time chat resulted in a switch to a zone defense. A clearly good switch it proved to be as Dartford made steal after steal and with Kayzi and Sean both dropping in another 3 pointer each, Todge closed off the third quarter with his only basket of the night at 46 - 50.

In the fourth quarter big George (8 points) and Sam (10 points) came alive as the Tigers clearly struggled physically and with more bombs from behind the arch (1 by Kayzi, 2 by James) the final score at the horn was 69 - 82.

Another victory for Dartford Sharks II, the first one on the road this season and all what remains is the question if they can continue their unbeaten season next week agains Crows.
