Hunters Fight Back Falls Short
The second game of the season unfortunately saw a second loss for the Woking Blackhalks. Final score 84 – 73. However, having trailed by as much as 30, and being 22 down at the half, the final score shows how well we played in the second.
It would have been easy to drop our heads and give up but instead we rallied together and won the second half. Switching to a zone helped us to nullify the inside threat of the Woodley Warriors quite significantly, and we went on a 16 – 6 run to start the 3rd quarter. But Woodley took a much needed time out, switched to zone and managed to stop the momentum.
Overall there were a lot of positives to take from the game, and plenty of good performances (especially on the defensive end).
Hunters Lose In A Close One
As I write this, I’m drinking a delicious Czech beer. Alas, this is not a celebratory drink. Nope. It is the other sort. The ‘drink away your troubles’ kind of beer.
As you may have guessed by now, we lost tonight. We lost by 2 measly points. 51 – 49. So I’m going to keep this short, as I don’t really feel like lingering on this match for too long.
We lost because we shot like doo doo. That’s pretty much the long and the short of it. Maybe it was first game nerves, or maybe it was just one of those days. Either way, we all know we were more than capable of beating that team with ease.
Despite the loss and the poor offence, there were some positives. First and foremost, our defence was pretty good, very good at times. We hustled hard and we didn’t get on each others cases for mistakes.
I’m going to leave it at that for now. Next time we’ll get them!
Scorers were as so:

The Woking Blackhawks Are Recruiting
For many years, this club has benefited from the hard work and dedication of a select few volunteers. Their tireless efforts, coordinated approach and selfless attitude have made the club thrive off the court so that we, the players can excel on the court. These few have taken on more and more duties as the years have passed, to the point where the viability of the club rests in the hands of a mere handful of volunteers.
As the club grows and the demands and opportunities continue to evolve, it is clear that the club needs to change our approach to managing the off-court side of our teams.
To that end, we are excited to announce a new structure to the Woking Blackhawks management committee.
