Dartord Sharks I through to next round of Medway Cup

Dartford was once again on the road to face Eltham in the Cup. Dartford has been enjoying success in the league but the Cup is a different beast all together, one bad game and you’re out. Dartford arrived in force ready to play and it showed by how the game started. Dartford took control early and never looked back. Eltham put forth a good effort but Dartford’s depth was too much for them to handle.

The key to success for Dartford was solid contribution from all players and dominance on the boards as Eltham struggled against our size and athleticism.

There were many highlights to choose from but the highlight of the match belongs to leaping big man Andrew Demmon who leaped for an offensive rebound and made a tough put back one handed…he was then subbed off immediately. It was hard to tell if this substitution was planned or a result of his failure to secure the rebound with two hands…we will let you decide.

Dartford will take a week off before welcoming Eltham to the Shark tank where they will look for a repeat performance.

Final Score : 42 - 71 

Sharks Scorers : Braknys 11, Schreiber 10, Demmon 9, Kraft 8, Marsh 6, Neverauskas 6, Pullen 6, Fraser 5, Maher 4, Andrzejewski 3, Long 3
