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.
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.
End of the Season for the Flyers as they Down the Rockets
Woking Blackhawk Flyers 91:39 Reading Rockets
A dominant performance for their last regular season league home game saw the Flyers resoundingly beat their local rivals Reading Rockets 91:39. Unfortunately progression to the play-offs also required Thames Valley Cavaliers to beat Kent Crusaders which they did not achieve.
The Rockets took the initial 2-point lead, they followed that with Foard sinking a long three taking the score to 4:5. That was the last time in the game that Rockets led.
Flyers Put Cavaliers to the Sword
Woking Blackhawk Flyers 80:70 Thames Valley Cavaliers
With only three games to go, each one is vital in keeping the Flyers prospects of progressing to the play-offs alive.
Thames Valley Cavaliers had only suffered a single defeat throughout the season, the Flyers were relishing the chance to inflict a second defeat – and they were not to be denied.
The opening minutes of the game both sides traded baskets until the score was 5 each when the Flyers took control and went on a 12 point run which the Cavaliers did not respond to, the score widen to 17:5.
Whilst the Cavaliers did close the margin the Flyers had a 6 point margin at the first break.
The second quarter became a close fought contest with the Flyers relinquishing their lead by the half break with a two-point deficit 39:41. There was a crucial thirty seconds where hustler Dan Marshall rolled his ankle and big man Jim Grainger ‘tweeked’ his knee suddenly the bench did not seem so strong. The Flyers maintained their confidence and round out this period.
