Fuhrmann basketball

4:05pm 12th April 2013

Tuesday 2nd April the Tandoori Bandits host the smugglers, with the hope of keeping their two game win streak going. The Tandoori Bandits started the match with a great first quarter to really put the visiting team on the back foot. The home side’s forwards did most of the damage in the first quarter with Ian Manley and Dzintars Kalkis combining for 8 points, leading Weymouth 24-15 ahead. In the second quarter Portsmouth started to defend the basket much better, this give a chance for the Tandoori Bandits guards to get going. Player coach Alex Fuhrmann hit two big 3-pointers back to back and Julien Lawes hit a three point shot it gave the home team much need boost to keep a good lead going into the next half, holding a 42–32 lead.

In the second half the game started to slow down with the referees getting more involved as the visiting team started to show their frustration. The Weymouth side tried to take advantage of the mental melt down from their opponents but unfortunately the Tandoori Bandits got into a bit of foul trouble themselves. Going into the fourth quarter the game quickly got back up to speed with the larger Smugglers side on full attack to try and cut into the Tandoori Bandits lead. Fortunately for the Tandoori Bandits, the whole team played great defence with Manley, Kalkis who joined by Fuhrmann started to make their shots and closing out the game 76–64 to one of the strongest side in division 1.

Scorers/Roster: Dzintars Kalkis 19, Ian Manley 16, Julien Lawes 14, Alex Fuhrmann 13, Chris Canham 6, Rich Camp 4, Carl Carter 2, Jake Kinder, Jim DeBertrand.
