Dragons Take Down the Warriors in the 'Den'
The Bradford Dragons enjoyed their third consecutive league victory this weekend as they dismantled an athletic Westminster Warriors team at home. The game got off to a fast start with both teams playing a high level of basketball, it was however the visitors that enjoyed an early lead as they lad at the end of the first quarter, 20 – 15.
The second quarter saw much of the same quality fast breaking competition as the Dragons fought their way back with some impressive defence and an offensive attack led by their American centre Chris McGrew. The Dragons ended the quarter just points adrift of the visitors and clearly had the momentum and the crowd on their side.
The second half saw the Dragons increase their defensive pressure as they looked to take a strangle hold on the game with great defensive pressure and full court above the rim basketball.
The Dragons ended the third quarter with a 2 point lead and full control of the game, rattling the visiting Warriors who came out in the fourth quarter and managed to score just 2 points as they faced a solid Dragons defence that would not allow them any chances to get back in to the game. The Dragons finished the game 70 – 57, McGrew 27, Foley 12 and Silcott 10.
