Woking Blackhawks vs Aztec Jaguars
Woking came into the last game of their season knowing that they could not secure a playoff position, having been pipped to the post by the Craftsmen. Despite this, the Blackhawks got off to a decent start, and went into an early 15 – 7 lead. However, a streak of sloppy turnovers led to a 11 – 0 run for the Aztecs. Blackhawks looked like a team who had nothing to play for, and after one quarter they trailed 20 -17.
Woking Blackhawks vs Windsor Warriors
Woking extended their recent good run of results with a comfortable home win against Windsor. Despite the win, Woking looked a little lethargic for large periods of the game, getting out rebounded regularly through the first half especially. The 3 point shooting, which has been so good in recent weeks, was not falling as much either.
Despite this, Woking never trailed through the game and never looked like losing. Ben Woods looked like he was returning to health, shooting the ball very well and scoring 15points. Sam Piercey came in to provide some points from the bench, scoring 9 (before being fouled out) and James Grinham provided his usual scoring threat, dropping 17.
It says a lot for how far the Blackhawks have come to be able to win a game so comfortably without playing their best.
Final score – Woking 79 – 59 Hungeford Dogs
James Grinham – 17points
Dave Nuttall ( c ) – 11points
Sam Piercey – 9points
Devon James – 8points
James Wildsmith – 8points
Rick Lansdell – 4points
Nick Sammut – 4points
Samir Limbu – 2points
Hungerford Dogs Spaid By Hunters
In the previous two meetings between these teams, the Blackhawks had run out narrow losers. However, within the first two minutes of this game, two things were clear.
Hunters Shoot Into The Win Column
The Blackhawks finally managed to chalk up a win of the season, but it wasn’t all smooth sailing.
A woefully lethargic first half left them trailing 28 – 22. A score which reflected the lack of urgency and dynamism the half was played with.
However, things turned around in the second. The energy levels went up and that was complimented by some fine shooting from Sam Piercey (4 three pointers in the game). At the end of the 3rd quarter James WIldsmith also nailed a couple of long rangers, with Captain Nutts hitting one in between.
Having trailed by 8 at one point, the Blackhawks did well to win 62 – 50.
Woking Win Well Without Woodsy, Walloping Woeful Woodley Warriors
Woking 74 – 58 Woodley
Woodley Warriors rocked up at Woking’s home court in confident spirits, sitting pretty in third place in the league. And Woking’s chances weren’t helped by the fact that they were missing one of their key players, Ben Woods.
Hunters 73 - Hungerford Dogs 82
A short handed Hunters team fell prey to the Hungerford full court press.
Hunters 67 - South Bucks Comets 76
A valliant effort for 3 quarters against a tough oponent.
