Broadclyst Bullets Shoot Blanks Against the Police
Dec 16, 2008, 1:12 am
         Not as a convincing win as the title suggests but hey, it's got you reading! Exeter Police maintained their success against Broadclyst in this pre-Christmas encounter. Police started off the first quarter well with Karl Rowland obviously relishing the game after his four week break from the sport being the only one on target for the first 5 minutes! Although Broadclyst came with a gameplan to put pressure on the ball-handlers, the Police were able to break out several times through-out the match and hold the lead going into half-time.
           The Police's points were coming from inside the paint and it took until the middle of the final quarter before their outside shooters decided to join the party but finished the game with a flurish of four 3 pointers! 'Buster' Brown was MVP for the Police, Dave Prywata top-scored with 28 points, and Smalley was MVP for Broadclyst in what turned out to be a comfortable 60 - 49 win for the Police.
           Time for the Christmas break and Turkey or Nut Roast for you sad non-meat lovers!

Bandits tame Tigers
Dec 7, 2008, 1:12 pm
With both teams missing key players this was always going to be a close match. Broadclyst started the stronger of the two teams to win the first period 18 - 12. The second period turned out to be even closer and a buzzer beater from Broadclyst's Mark Turner meant that they held onto thier six point lead at half time. The third went much the same way with Broadclyst only managing to extend their lead by one point setting up an exciting final period. The fourth quarter turned out to be one dominated by strong defence from both teams which saw Torbay take a one point lead by the fifth minute. However after an error strewn game Broadclyst's Holt was sent to the line and showed he great bouncebackability to hold his nerve and sink both free throws. This giave them some breathing space and set up an exciting final two minutes which saw Broadclyst hold on for a 58 - 56 victory. Notable performances came from Broadclyst MVP Adi Watts who was strong on the boards at both ends of the court and Tigers MVP Troy Culley who always posed a threat with the ball in his hands.

Bandits go through
Nov 30, 2008, 2:13 pm
Broadclyst Bandits recorded a comfortable victory over Namads in their cup quarter final. Coach Burridge opted for a big starting 5 against a much smaller Nomads side in the first quarter which worked well and saw Broadclyst leading 27 - 15 at the end of the quarter. Early on in the second Broadclyst began to rotate their bench well and by the end of the match all of the team recorded points on the scoresheet. Jamie Hyde was out to prove a point by hitting a big 3 pointer early in the 2nd to start a 13 - 3 run by Broadclyst. However a spirited performance by Nomads meant that Broadclyst didn't have it all their own way and numerous handling errors by the Bandits at the end of the half gave the visitors hope. The third quarter saw a much better performance by Nomads and helped by three 3 pointers by Nomad MVP Henry Little they only lost the quarter by one point, 23 - 22. The final quarter went the way of the first half with Broadclyst taking control of the game and running out winners 92 - 67. MVP for Broadclyst was Ian Hunt who's turn around jump shot proved difficult for the Nomads defence to cope with.

Please make sure that you nominate an MVP for the opposition for EVERY game and record it on the white copy of the score sheet at the end of the game. Some clubs have failed to do this and it has an effect on the stats.

Broadclyst back to winning ways
Nov 19, 2008, 8:03 pm
Broadclyst travelled to Taunton looking to get their season back on track following a heavy defeat to Exeter Uni 1. The first quater was an evenly balanced affair with both teams trading baskets. Late into the quarter Broadclyst went on a 9 - 2 run led by MVP Ashley Crispin who had 15 of his 37 points in the 1st giving them a 23 - 18 lead. The second quarter was equally balanced but strong defence by both teams kept the scoring low with Broadclyst taking a slender 35 - 31 lead into half time. Following a motivational team talk from stand in coack Ray Kirk, Broadclyst came out strong and led by Thomas Mijiunas forced several turnovers and began to take control of the game, however a last second buzzer beater by Ben Thompson of Taunton kept them in it going into the fourth quarter. Revolution came out strong by pressing full court which initially caused Broadclyst some problems until they regained their composure to run out winners 54 - 74. This was a well reffed game which looked closer then the final score suggests and was played in a competitive but fair manner setting up a tasty looking rematch in Broadclyst.

Bad Day at the Office....

        Exeter Police Men suffered defeat at the hands of North Devon again, the Police were convincingly beaten after suffering several player withdrawels on the day of the match.
         North Devon won the first three quarters of this match, 5 - 23, 14 - 18, and 5 - 11 which gave them a lead of 52 - 24 at the beginning of the fourth quarter in a very one-sided match that the Police struggled to find any consisitency in their game or the basket!
        The fourth quarter brought a complete turn-around with the Police putting a full court press on North Devon and suddenly MVP Dave Prywata finding the basket along with other players. North Devon were glad to have built up such a substantial lead as was needed with the final score 52 - 63 to North Devon who left with their 'unbeaten' record still intact.

The Best Women's Match for Years.......
Nov 11, 2008, 4:34 pm
.... was heard from several supporters at Middlemoor last night. A game that was a great advert for the women's game came to life from the tip-off. Both very evenly matched teams traded baskets and leads throughout this match. Despite both teams managing to get a lead at different times in the match the other team managed to peg it back.
          University had the two pronged attack of captain Quara'n and MVP Takigama with 23 and 21 points respectively and the Police women had the variety of scoring from all positions with Uni not aware of where the next point scoring basket would come from!
          The first quarter ended 18 apiece, the half ended with Uni up by 1 point 32 - 31 and the third quarter 49 apiece. In the fourth quarter Police took what appeared to be a match winning lead of 8 points with less than two minutes remaining (the previous best lead in the match was 3 points) when suddenly the wheel came off and Uni came back to level at 61 points all with seconds left on the clock and appearing to put the tie into extra time when MVP for Police Holt was fouled and put to the line - she held her nerve and hit both free throws and with it blew away University's cup dreams for a second year in a row.

Absentees Pay Big Price for Police....
Nov 11, 2008, 4:24 pm
          The Men's Police Division II side paid a high price for too many absentees from their side for their late night Monday fixture against University II. Uni II had already beaten Police on their home 'turf' this season and to go into the match with several players missing seemed to be a accident waiting to happen - and so it was!
             The Uni II side appeared to be up to full strength and in a 'messy' foul ridden game that caused three of their players to be fouled off it was just as well. But not to take anything away from Uni II who raced away after the first 5 minutes of no scoring by both teams leaving the Police behind with four '3 pointers' in the last 5 minutes of the first quarter led by their MVP McKay with 12 of their first quarter 17 points. Police were struggling from the free throw line only hitting two of their first quarter eight free throws with all players appearing off par.
              Uni II won every quarter to win the match 86 - 55 despite MVP Dave Prywata top-scoring with 33 points.
