Dragons showed encouraging spells of play throughout but were ultimately second-best on the day. Team Solent Kestrels improve to 6-0 in the NBL Division One but were made to work by a resilient Dragons team that fought until the final buzzer.
Looking to end Solent’s 16 game unbeaten run dating back to February 23rd, 2019, the Dragons travelled to the South Coast in search of their first away victory of the season.
Not adverse to breaking Solent unbeaten runs having put to an end the Kestrels 10-game unbeaten start to the 2018-19 season, the Dragons were hoping that history would repeat itself on Matchday Six.
The hosts opened the scoring with a floater from American Ian Smith. The visitors traded buckets with the league leaders in the opening minutes as the trio of Jermayne Laing, Ricky Fetske and Allie Fullah all got on the scoreboard.
