Hornets 75 – Cavaliers 57

Our first game of the season came against Thames Valley Cavaliers. Our first quarter of the season wasn’t as dominant as one may have hoped but a friendly reminder about our defence during a timeout led to a defensive performance in the 2nd and 3rd that ultimately won us the game. Our offence became more fluid in the 2nd half with some 3pt shooting from Baraka and of course ‘Splashton’. Our season had begun with a comfortable win that we should place down to good defence and capitalise on for our future fixtures. Top scorer was Ashton with 19. This game proved what we all know “defence wins games”.
