TWITTER@ArchersBasket 

Cardiff Met Archers made the trip from Wales to visit Gloucester’s historic docks and take on the Saxons in an U16 South West National League match up.

Cardiff got out to a quick start and established a double digit lead early in the 1st quarter which they pretty much maintained throughout the game, although Saxons made a spirited 4th quarter fight back to cut the lead to single digits and keep the crowd on edge for the final 5 minutes.

Next Game: Saturday 27th October. (H) vs Vale Vipers.

The men welcomed league newcomers, Dorset Storm to Gloucestershire College for an #NBL1819 National League Fixture.  The tip off was delayed, due to traffic and the late arrival Storm players, with the game starting approximately 10 minutes late.

The first three quarters were a closely fought affair, with both teams taking the lead but neither team managed to gain a significant double digit lead.  Going into the final quarter, Storm led by 5, but finished off the game with a strong 4th quarter, showing a disciplined display to run out winners by 20.

1st Quarter: Saxons 18-17 Storm
2nd Quarter: Saxons 31-37 Storm
3rd Quarter: Saxons 54-59 Storm
Final Score: Saxons 63-83 Dorset Storm

Saxons get blown away by Hurricanes

After the game, Head Coach Danny James wrote:

“Saturday saw the Saxons Men’s first competitive game of the season against the visiting Bristol Hurricanes.

Saxons, whose preseason had not gone to plan, played this game as their very first game together as a squad.

Bristol Hurricanes took full advantage of the situation opening up a 26 point 11 opening quarter. The second quarter was no different with Hurricanes taking a 48 point to 17 point lead into the break. 

The half time break allowed Saxons to re group and to break down areas that simply were not good enough. Hurricanes played great team basketball and were very aggressive defensively which proved to be a tough opening test for the home team.

The second half saw noticeable improvements in key areas for the Saxons. They were no longer second best in the hustle plays, offensively they spaced the floor better and were more aggressive in attacking the basket.

Hurricanes still topped the second half with a 35 point to 25 point display in their favour. Noticeable Saxon improvements meant that there were still positives to take from the game.

“Today was a very tough test”

Hurricanes will be fighting it out at the top of the league this season. We were very poor in the first half, we failed to take care of simple things. We were out hustled and really didn’t commit to the game plan. The second half was better, we hustled more, we were more aggressive at both ends and we competed.

“Hurricanes were professional in their execution of their game plan and they deserved the win. We have a lot to learn but I believe we have the players willing to do that”.

Saxons welcomed 7 new players to the team yesterday with a further 4 new faces in the 16 man squad. It will be interesting to see how the players begin to gel in the coming weeks.

Stand out Saxon performer was Damon Dyer who led the team in scoring (9) and blocked shots (7).

Another positive was that 9 Saxons players got onto the scoreboard which was encouraging to see, despite the big loss.

Hurricanes balanced scoring saw 3 players in double digits with 3 more just shy of double digits.

Next week the Saxons travel to Cardiff on Sunday to take on Cardiff Met Archers II.
