Sweet Revenge For Police Against Uni
Dec 19, 2009, 12:10 pm

Tension was high at the start of the game for the Police team as they has lost, for the first time in a long time, to the Uni team in their last match and they did not want to see a repeat performance!


At the end of the first half the Police team had a lead of 8 points which was reduce to a 6 pint lead at half time.


Excellent shooting by Cridland, Blackburn and Johnston secured this lead.


However the score line at the end of the 3rd quarter was very different, Exeter Uni in the lead 57 versus 53.


Police didn’t start the last quarter well either and with 6 minutes to go 65 Uni versus 53 Police. Things did not look good for us.


However with a fighting team performance Police pulled back and rattled the Uni team, stopping their outside shooters and converting their opportunities saw a win for the Police team. Excellent shooting by Blackburn, Cridland and Yates secured this win.


MVP went to Yates and the top scorers for the Police team was Cridland


A great team performance and a well fought match.

Eagles Triumph At Home
Dec 19, 2009, 12:08 pm

After a successful win against Plymouth University last month, Weymouth Huskies had quite a battle on their hands. Exeter Eagles who are currently 3rd in the league took an early lead and after the 7th minute were 7-0 up. Rosie Flaherty responded with a drive to the basket and got the Huskies onto the scoreboard. Soon to be followed by Jayne Guppy. Into the second quarter and the Eagles were 21 points ahead. Their defence was second to none and the Huskies were playing a whole new ball game. Huskies adapted well to the full court press but just couldn’t finish off the many opportunities of the open basket. Huskies battled on and didn’t give up the fight, with Rosie Flaherty the teams mean machine battling through the defence. After a run of successful shots Rosie soon found herself fouled out of the game but also awarded as MVP. Not feeling completely demoralised with a final score of 92-18 the Huskies proved they could adapt throughout the game to the high standard of playing.

First Blood to Pacers - Literally! But Only a Small Cut
Dec 7, 2009, 11:33 pm

In what was a marker set down for the two matches to come between Peelers and Pacers, Pacers managed to take first blood – literally! It what was a hard fought – no quarter given match but played in great spirit between the two sides.

            Peelers had done their homework on Pacers and there was no way they were going to dominate the inside area of either the defensive or offensive keys as they had done in the demolition of Exeter Uni. The first quarter went with Peelers, finishing 17 – 13 up. Neither Clark Agambar-Froud or Alex Wilson managed a point or a free inside lay-up. The plan was working.

            Pacers were not going to give up on this match though and the introduction of Captain Robin Wilding-Webb meant that Peelers now had to keep his outside shot in check as well as looking after their inside players. This was a good tactic by Pacers and suddenly Clark and Alex found the basket, Clark with several from outside the key. Peelers weren’t going to give up without a fight though and their not so secret weapon – Dave Prywata found his shooting boots this season – the match saw him hit an MVP of 33 points! The half finished with Pacers just taking the lead 37 – 41.

            Peelers realised that they had to keep within sight of Pacers, Mark Leach found his ‘3 point’ shot hitting 4 long baskets, and along with Gareth Cooper with 15 points they kept level pegging with Pacers despite the best intentions of a Pacers team who spread the points out amongst their team showing they all have an eye for the basket!

            The last quarter went level pegging again until the 9th minute when Pacers suddenly took a 4 point lead overall forcing Peelers to have to foul to try to gain possession. On small plays the game can change, Karl Rowland missed two free throws in the 10th minute and then Dave Prywata fouled on the way to the bucket saw the ball roll around the bucket before dropping out! Two free throws missed – this led to Pacers securing a 7 point win.

            Alex Waters took MVP for Pacers for his all round play which opened the game up, Pacers will know that this match wasn’t in the bag until the final seconds of the game and it is the third game that Peelers have lost to a narrow margin in the closing seconds – the New Year will bring the re-match!

Postponement of Matches
Dec 4, 2009, 10:00 pm

The Executive discussed the postponement of matches between Taunton Revolution versus University I, plus Broadclyst Bandits versus Taunton Revolution.

Teams are reminded that if they do not play matches at the scheduled time without there being exceptional circumstances they are liable to be fined £25, be subject to losing the match by default 20 - 0, AND if it is a late cancellation (within 48hrs) and the relevant parties not informed, they could be liable for the full costs of the venue and referee's fees.

The Executive do not wish to use these fines but it is unfair on the opposing clubs for them to have to carry the cost of a late cancellation by their opponents.

Executive Ruling

3 Point Goal Fest At Broadclyst
Nov 28, 2009, 10:22 pm

The painted zone was apparently out of bounds in the match between Broadclyst Bullets and Weymouth Cowboys as both sides went on a 3 point goal fest in this match where there was a massive 18 successful '3 point' shots!!

In their previous meeting at home the Weymouth Cowboys showed league veterans the Broadclyst Bullets they would be no push over in the league. It was Weymouth’s turn at the weekend to make the return leg, though the British weather nearly stopped them from making it back.


With only 6 active players Broadclyst did not look to change the result from the previous meeting, though Weymouth kept their wits about them as they started the game in fine form with Dan Campbell hitting back to back 3 pointers to put the guests ahead. The half continued at a even pace with both teams finding scoring from long range, Campbell joined by Alex Legg and Alex Fuhrmann to close to the half only 26 – 27 behind.


The second half proved more difficult for the Weymouth side as they shied away from their long range effort and hoped to go inside to their big men. This proved costly for the Cowboys as Broadclyst found an even more accurate shooting form allowing them to pull away. With the final period upon them Weymouth could only shave down the now huge lead, with further long range efforts from Fuhrmann and Campbell, it was not enough as the Bullets leading scorer Adam Mitchell made his amazing 10th 3 pointer of the game to end the result 71 – 51 to the Bullets.


Player/Coach Alex Fuhrmann “when you talk about 1 player that can change a game, this was the best example. I’ve never played in a game where 1 person has hit 10 three pointers and I’m sure without him against us we could of got the result. Despite this though, we still didn’t do the simple things. Our rebounders really let us down and we got totally man handled down low.”


Roster/Scorers: Alex Fuhrmann 24, Dan Campbell 11, Che Osborne 7, Alex Legg 5, Marco Deters 4, Harry Williams, Sam Dodge, Rob Legg, Sam Hepburn, Connor Doherty.

Sweet Cup Revenge For Uni As Police Lose Their Way!
Nov 28, 2009, 10:16 pm

As usual another great game versus the University girls but this time University came out on top and ended our Cup dream! A frantic game that was very close all the way through until the final quarter. Police struggled with a bench of 6 with injury and absentees, while University had the luxury of a bench of 9.


All through the 1st and 2nd quarters it was looking as though Police may get yet another win off the University, however that changed as University came back in 3rd &

4th quarters but still there were only a few points to separate both teams.


In the final quarter Police were out of play ideas and a couple of players tried to convert some 3 point shots in order to get right back into the match, however luck was not on their side and the University took the opportunity to rebound and fast break to eventually nail a 57-47 victory! MVP for Police = Laura Yates and University Tamara Quara’n. Good luck to University in the rest of the Cup!

Bridport Roll Over For Taunton
Nov 28, 2009, 10:13 pm

Taunton Revolution played Bridport at Castle Sports Centre in Taunton on on November 23rd. It was the first meet of the season for the teams. In the first quarter, a depleted Revolution squad took advantage of Bridport scoring early and often. Matt Acott scored from long range and inside with 12 points in the first ten minutes of play. By halftime Marc Eggleton also had 10 points and Brett Cooper was on 13 to lead the Revolution.

At the break Taunton were up 49-30. In the third quarter an energised Bridport team surprised Taunton, narrowing the gap to ten. Taunton responded well lead by big man Paul Crawford in the middle to finish the quarter strong. In the last session Taunton displayed some excellent teamwork, passing the ball well and finishing on the break. The game would see great contributions from newer players Justin Burke and Rob Rowe who both performed well throughout. The final score of 93-69 was a good win for the Revolution.

A great team effort with everyone scoring and 4 players in double figure points, which was a reflection of the team play both on offence and defence. Scorers on the night were – Cooper 33, Acott 20, Crawford 14, Eggleton 12, Burke 7, Rowe 5, Gladys 4.
