Clarence (1-4) horror start to the season continued at Hilliard against
Phoenix(5-0). Shane Harris-Tunks (6pts, 4reb) returned but had little to no effect on Corey Davie’s (25pts,18reb) game. Andrew Beattie and Joel Davie hurt Clarence everywhere, while Clarence couldn’t find a winner all night.
Neither Cam Bennerman nor Kyle Hunt made appearances for their respective sides as Grenadiers took on Wellington. Sam Youl (27pts,9reb) and Jeff St John (17pts,8reb) led the way for Grenadiers (3-2) over the still winless Wellington (0-5)
2015 surprise package Kingston (2-3) only went down to Breakers (4-1) by 2 points. Without Greg Doliver and defensive expert Guy Paramore, Kingston battled all night. BJ Radcliffe (24pts, 18reb) and Tiri Masunda (27pts, 8as) were yet again the fire in Breakers engine room.
Phoenix women (5-0) handed Clarence women (4-1) their first defeat for 2015. With Kylie McCauley26pts, 8reb) to strong and to accurate in the paint, the running, active game of Klara Wischer (17pts,12reb) and the accuracy of Dimi Jaynes (20pts @70%), Emma Dennis and Kate Berry just didn’t have enough support.
Gabby Mann (18pts) , Marj Rava (12pts, 11reb) and Tamara Downie (12pts,11reb) led Kingston (1-4) past the winless Breakers (0-5).
With both Grenadiers (3-2) and Wellington (2-3) shooting at very low percentage, it was the Morgan Sisters, Isabelle(17pts) and Emily(12pts) who helped drag Grenadiers past Wellington.
