Tandoori Bandits Beat Wasps In The Nest

Weymouth Tandoori Bandits 2011-12


8:57am 4th March 2013

After slow start in the new year and few lost games, the Tandoori Bandits travelled to Winchester to face the Wasps at their home ground at Winchester college.
 
Tandoori Bandits started strong willing to prove that although they are the smallest town in Division 1, they can compete with all teams. Shots came from Chris Canham and Vatoldas Balciunas with good team defence and Weymouth looked at a 8-2 lead after three minutes. Tandoori Bandits keep the control of the game in first half with good defence and excellent ball movement in offence, keeping them in front of Wasps at the half 42-33 ahead.
 
During the halftime break, the team highlighted the need of keeping the intensity both in offence and defence, also rotating players to stay fresh. Brilliant defence from Ian Manley continued to prove that he can defend any player in the league, which assisted a great bench effort by Sam Dodge and Jordan Daniels which helps to keep the intensity and the pressure. Wasps received a technical foul for not controlling their emotions and Tandoori Bandits increases the difference even more. Weymouth kept the game in their hands and took the win from Wasps with a final score 73 – 85.

Chris Canham, said “Great game, outstanding performance by the team in offence and defence. It felt like Wasps tried everything to try to get back to the game but Tandoori Bandits did not let go and kept everything in control.”
 
Weymouth MVP: Dzintars Kalkis
 
Scorers/Rosters: Dzintars Kalkis 28, Ian Manley 22, Chris Canham 13, Julien Lawes 8, Vatoldas Balciunas 8, Carl Carter 6, Jordan Daniels, Sam Dodge.
