Braves III travelled to Bradley Stoke to face the Empees, a team who currently occupy top spot in Div 1, two divisions above us.. Any hopes our opponents had of quickly reducing the +61 point headstart Braves were given in this Trophy game were soon over after Braves ended the 1st Qtr leading by 66pts.. A combination of composed offense, sharp shooting, steals transitioning tinto fast break points and a one man 'block party' from Mr Hammertime himself, Roger DAT. (the MC hit a double-double in points and rebounds to go along with his 7 blocks!!). By the end of the 3rd, Braves had only given up 2 of the 61 point handicap they started with. Other highlights included a career high in points for Kye THOMAS and then three steals in two minutes from Charlie CUSDEN at the end of the 4th. A great start in the Trophy Competition for Braves!!!
