Filton Knock Nailsea Out of the Cup in Quarter Finals, 100 - 53

February 21, 2008 on 6:36 pm | In General

Last night saw Nailsea face their toughest opposition to date, in the form of the Division 1 powerhouse that is Filton. The team faced off in Nailsea at Scotch Horn on Wednesday 20th Feb, with the final score ending 100 - 53. This was the third Cup match Nailsea had played this year, after victories against Empees and the Wizards in earlier rounds. Being the only non-Division 1 team left in the tournament was always going to prove a challenge to the Nailsea team, but they came out fighting and put on a decent performance. The second half was better than the first, where Nailsea struggled against a young, fast team, who applied a full court press throughout most of the game.

This round up would not be complete without mentioning a fantastic alley-oop dunk passed from Jason to Gus late in the 4th, which he proceeded to dunk on top of one of the Filton players to the delight of the whole team and raucous Nailsea home crowd! Thanks to the fans as ever for their continued (and VERY loud) support!
