Nailsea Suffer Slow Start to Trophy Tournament

January 31, 2008 on 4:48 pm | In General

Nailsea have played their first two games of this year’s trophy tournament over the last fortnight. Last week they faced Division 3 rivals from last year, Totterdown, who were responsible for Nailsea’s only defeat in their first season! The trophy tournament sees point head starts awarded to one team to take into consideration current division positions, and so Totterdown begun the game with a 7 point lead. The final score was 61 - 51 to Totterdown, with Jason Boulton picking up MVP honours and 14 points for Nailsea. This was a difficult start to the group stage of the trophy tournament for Nailsea, with a busy schedule coming up to complete their other games.

Game Stats:

Last night in Nailsea, the team faced Division 3 team, Pirates B, who begun the match with a substantial 38 point head start. While the Pirates team had only 5 players in the game, they played with good strength, and despite periods of excellent defense and intensity, Nailsea were unable to claw back many points. The head start affected the Nailsea team’s mentality, and the game ended with Pirates up 95 - 56. Nailsea player Jake Watkins picked up MVP honours and a team high 16 points.

Game Stats:

The trophy tournament continues tomorrow night (1/2/08) with a tough game against Division 1 Worle, away at Hutton Moor Leisure Centre. The trophy then continues with a home match next Wednesday vs Knights, before the final first round match against the A&S Police away, the following Wednesday.
