Every match Braves show the qualities of a maturing side, this game was no exception for Rowan CHERNIAVSKY, Malin WHITE and Kye THOMAS. Rowan was asked by his coaches to be more ascertive and dominant in the paint. Kye was asked to stay confident in his abilities and drain the 3pt'ers and Malin was asked....well, "just do your thang". All had a great game, 15pts from Malin, 9pts from Kye (a timely 3pt'er scored when we were behind by 7pts in the 1st Qtr which kickstarted the comeback) and some ridiculous offensive and defensive big man play from Rowan.
At the end of 2nd Qtr, Braves rallied a comeback and at half time Braves led, 20 - 16. The opponents didn't like being behind and they showed it as the game became a little fiesty at times. But Braves were not to be intimidated and the game hung in the balance with only four minutes remaining and only 6pts in it. Coach Matt OTRIDGE, called a timeout and collected the troops for one final push to regain the lead and take home the well deserved win. But our foul trouble meant that Police had the upper hand and they used it to their advantage, buying several free throws from the officials and then converting 5 out of 6 of those free throws. A great contest mildly tainted by some foul language on court but Braves can reflect on a their performance with pride because the coaches know, this developing side will go far!!!.
