Who Can Stop The Unstoppable Pacers?
Jan 31, 2015, 9:49 am

NEWTON ABBOT PACERS           68   PLYMOUTH UNIVERSITY                       39



After an unusually long, seven week, game break over the Christmas period could Pacers pick up their game from the start against a rapidly improving Plymouth University team? The opening moments of the game saw Pacers with plenty of possession and numerous scoring opportunities but, frustratingly, there was no finish to the play. In fact it was Plymouth University who held the early lead. Eventually Pacers found their scoring groove and went ahead, 11-5, with just a few minutes of the period remaining. At this point, however, Pacers were guilty of leaving the dangerous University point guard unattended on too many occasions so by the end of the period the scores were tied at 13 apiece.  

In the second period realignment in Pacers defensive formation ensured that the Plymouth University point guard was kept quiet and in fact she did not score in this 10 minutes of play. At the other end of the court Pacers were finding plenty of space within the visitors defence close to basket and consequently a steady flow of scoring put the home team in a very strong position at half time, leading 32-16.

At the start of the second half Pacers showed some measured pass and move play and, with clinical shooting, they extended their lead further. However in defence they were being called for over aggressive play at numerous times, allowing Plymouth University to cancel out any further advantage that Pacers had gained in this period. Often the best form of defence is to go on the attack so, to change the tempo of the game in the closing minute of the period, Pacers stepped up into a full court defensive mode. The added pressure on the Plymouth University team under their own ring resulted in turnovers and a quick scoring of five points to leave Pacers ahead at 47-26 at the end of the third quarter.

Maintaining their high pressure game at the start of the final period meant Pacers totally dominated the first five minutes, extending their lead to 30 points. Then, as Pacers dropped back into a more structured defensive shape, the Plymouth University team had a spell of more positive attacking play and they added 10 points to their score. However, Pacers then had the best moments at the end of the game to end up with a score of 68-39 at the final whistle.

After such a long break it was good to be playing matches again. After a shaky start the players showed why they remain unbeaten so far this season with some excellent defensive work and a line-up that shows all are contributing to the offensive play.
