Fresh off advancing to the BBL Trophy Final, the 16-0 Kestrels were in no mood to drop their first league game of the season.
Leading for almost the entirety of the game, the visitors shot 69% for the game as the Dragons struggled to slow down the visitor’s offensive onslaught.
Solent’s Travis Charles opened the scoring with a layup. The Dragons sole lead of the game came seconds later through a Dave Walsh three.
Then the Kestrels three-point bombardment began. Leading scorer Elliot Sentence knocked down the first of his five threes in the opening quarter.
Captain Elliot Dadds also got in on the action from deep as he swished home two threes. Behind 7-9 shooting from downtown, the league leaders opened up a 38-19 lead after the first quarter of play.
Unfortunately for the Dragons faithful inside of the Dragons Den, the second quarter followed suit.
Despite brief stints of positive play from Jermayne Laing and Rihards Šulcs, the Kestrels continued to build their lead.
Shooting 76% from the field, the visitors led 69-35 as the first half drew to a close.
Dragons continued to fight in the penultimate quarter, but the offense never managed to get into a rhythm.
