Barking & Dagenham Erkenwald Basketball Club

Match Report EMBL - Thursday 6th March 2003
Erks 2 83 Cardinals 64


Erks prevailed in this "double header" fixture at Sydney Russell on Thursday. Cardinals arrived in usual fashion with only 3 players at the venue 10 minutes after the scheduled tip off time but were soon up to 6 when "H" bowled in with 2 others.

Ex Erk and Roland Rat lookalike Kevin Waterfield led the charge for the visitors with a couple of quick three pointers but Erks quickly hit back with some strong one box and one defence culminating in the rat being hit in the stomach. The 2 Daves (Italian and Garbage Time) led the Erks to a first quarter lead of 18 to 14. Erks maintained a slight lead until half time with Lee Atkinson finding his range to lead at the half 39 - 33.

The third quarter saw the Erks increase the lead but the visitors kept pulling back. With Declan McCusker and Banji Ladipo sent to the bench at the end of the 3rd quarter, the visitors were down to 5 players and trailing by 8 points. Erks increased the tempo and when "H" fouled out with 5 minutes to go and Erks up by 9 points, Erks ran out easy winners. Garbage Time Dave put the icing on the cake with a coast to coast dunk at the finish.

Erks scorers:
Declan- nil (but some ratty defence); Gary 10; Martin 12; Lee Atkinson 8; Dave Bromfield 10; Italian Dave 20; Paul Haydan 2; Garbage Time Dave 21
