Weymouth Mission Fitness Bandits Home Streak Stays Alive


10:33am 27th November 2014

Weymouth Mission Fitness Bandits played their first cup game of the season against a fellow division 1 team the Exeter Nomads, having beaten them in their first game of the season, confidence was high but the Nomads looked to avenge a big defeat by hitting some big threes to open the game. Luckily for Weymouth, Vitoldas Balciunas and Jake Kinder took over and settled the early nerves giving the home team an 18-15 lead.

The second quarter started out at much of the same tempo and within a few minutes the intensity increased Mission Fitness Bandits were getting stops with ease whilst Kinder and Craig Sorrell were keeping the scoreboard ticking over with some big points. The Nomads were rattled and didn't like the home teams intense defence, leaving the Weymouth Mission Fitness Bandits to take the quarter 34-25.

Entering the third quarter Weymouth looked to exploit the upset Nomads and took control of the game, but they weren't giving up just yet and the home team had to work hard at both ends of the floor to keep their 51-40 lead.

Entering the fourth quarter the home team had a bit of a cushion but the Nomads had a bee in there bonnet and came out fighting, pushing the Mission Fitness Bandits into making several mistakes resulting in points for the away team, all intensity had gone but the home team managed to hold out for the 65-59 win.

Coach Alex Fuhrman said, “Vitoldas Balciunas and Jake Kinder had big nights tonight scoring points and getting rebounds but it was a good dogged win against a rattled Nomads team, all credit to my team for keeping cool and getting a good win.”
