Finally another win for Sharks II

After a promising start to the season we had started to go into reverse during November. With 3 losses in a row to Maidstone, New House and Sevenoaks, we really needed to stop the rot.

This week’s game saw us travel the short distance to Gravesend to play Iroquois Braves and we had a full squad up for the task.

By stepping up the defence from early on we were able to limit their efforts offensively and to create plenty of chances for us to get ahead. However, we struggled to take these early opportunities and the game remained dead even. Iroquois took the 1st quarter 9-8 and it took a 3pt buzzer beater from the back court from Tom to make it 23-23 at half time.

Into the 3rd and despite our efforts we could not pull away with the quarter ending 36-37. We were still missing something to inspire us into victory. That something turned up in the form of a team talk from Corey and from then on ‘pressure!’ was the word of the game.

Something clicked with the team and a final quarter score of 6-20 saw us take the game 42-57 and levelled our season back to 3 and 3.

Final Score : 42-57

Sharks Scorers : Yogev 13, Grimes 9, Smee 8, Andrzejewski 5, Dickson 4, Rowlett 4, Stopford 4, Plail 3, Whitaker 3, Fraine 2, Olanolan 2
