James Watt College v Derby Trailblazers Academy

The final game of the season turned out to be the most important game for both teams as the winner cements 3rd place in the final standings.

The game started in a nervy fashion with both teams missing shots early and committing turnovers, James Watt eventually got the scoring going in the 3rd minute and continued to score 9 points before Derby were able to register their first score with a 3 pointer from T Mutemango. As the quarter went on Derby were getting to grips with the game while James watt continued scoring throughout the quarter. 24-13 James Watt

The second quarter was similar to the start of the game where James Watt continued scoring, this time early in the quarter. Derby started scoring and it was punch for punch mid quarter. Derby began to settle into the game, finding their rhythm on offence combining with some good defence and out on a run finishing the quarter with a heavily contested 3 pointer to end the quarter down 2 points. 38-36 James Watt.

The third quarter was like a boxing match with both teams giving as good as they got. Both teams knuckled down and played some good defence in what was a balanced quarter score of 19-17.

The final quarter was all Derby. James Watt found it difficult to score and were scoring freely on offense due to sharp shooting T. Mutemango who hit 4 3’s in the quarter. His sharp shooting was too much for James Watt and was the difference in the game. It was a hard-fought game with both teams playing the correct way with a fantastic attitude. Final score 76-81 Derby Trailblazers.

Quarter scores 24-13, 14-23, 19-23, 19-28
