The new season tipped off with an example of exactly what we can expect from our Braves this season, ACTION packed, DRAMA filled, basketball!! Your Braves IIi hit to road with their new squad for the season, hoping to put into practice some of the pre-season training. We started slowly going behind 11 - 2 but after a timeout, Braves put a stop to the opponents rally with an statement of intent from Dan FARROW who nailed the 3pt'er (netted 14pts in total), joint top scorer with Rowan CHERNIAVSKI. Braves brought the game back and then tussled for the lead resulting in the match being tied at halftime. The excitement and drama continued right to the final 3 seconds where Braves found themselves on top but by just 2pts and the opponents with possession under our basket after a timeout. Braves had a plan...DENY the score! Clevedon executed their play perfectly to set up the 3pt attempt and win the game by one but the pressure on the shooter was just enough to cause the shot to rim out and fall kindly. A really BRAVE performance right to the very end from our Braves. Be sure to come cheer us on and witness some of the action and drama yourself at Redland Green School every Thursday 8-10pm starting next week.
