THUNDER v BRADFORD DRAGONS
Thunders sparkle extinguishes Dragons fire!
This game was in the end a comfortable victory for the Thunder after an incredible second period saw them blow the Dragons away with a burst of three pointers.
In a fast exciting period the home team hit 6 treys as a rampant Thunder amassed 37 points to lead at the half way stage by 61-27, It was over a 5 minute period and a 22-0 run that saw Thunder seal the game in dramatic style making the second half look pedestrian in comparison.
Thunder, boasting MVP’s for January ( Jorge Ebanks-Player and Coach Josh Goddard) were unstoppable with for the third successive game Jorge being nominated as Barkers Tarring Player of the Game. Having had a great January he has now started February in the same vein with another 30 plus points haul. It was not only Jorge who caught the eye as Zaire Taylor chipped in a perfect 7 treys in his 21 points! Big man Alex Owumi had 5 treys in his 19 as he began to find the net on a regular basis. Thunder slowed the pace after the break as the win was secure and having a game on the Sunday looked to rest the main players.
