ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – Defending champions Bayside Blazers continued their perfect start to the 3rd Annual Julian Fraser/Save the Seed Basketball League with a battling 68-63 defeat of the Warrias on Saturday August 21, 2015 at the Save the Seed Energy Centre in Duff’s Bottom.

For the second game in a row, however, their credentials as potential repeating champions were thoroughly tested by a hungry Warrias outfit that just wouldn’t go away.

Steve E. Parillon made his debut for the Blazers in place of original draft signing Kellven M. Samuel and made an immediate impact, picking up ten rebounds, even if somewhat rusty when shooting.

A topsy turvy first period saw several lead changes in a low scoring start and which ended with several missed shots and a 15-14 score line.

Frankly L. Penn Junior extended the Blazers to a 3-point lead to start the second quarter and then they went on a six point surge, not allowing the Warrias to score until with just over five minutes to half time when Juan Hatchett splashed from long range to make it 23-17.

By the half time buzzer the Warrias had clawed back to just a four-point deficit at 29-25, with Terrique Wattley going in from down town and Deangelo Sampson also finding the basket.

Late back on court, the Blazers then handed a two-pointer to Wattley and saw Hatchett score again to make it 31-31, before Penn Jnr went 2/2 from the free throw line and followed up a smart move from Parillon to slam home, opening up a four-point gap.

Frankly L. Penn Jnr on fire

Hatchett then responded with 2 successes from the charity stripe and Joash Victor netted a “3”. However, Penn Jnr was now on fire and scored six points in a run that gave the Blazers their biggest lead of the game at 52-41.

Starting the fourth quarter with equal determination, Penn Jnr scored again, Ryan R. Alfred added two more, Dione M. Blyden also scored and the Blazers raced into a 17-point lead at 60-43.

Warrias fight back

However, Albert Hatchett scored a “3”, brother Juan added successive two’s and Victor sank a “3” to make it just an 8-point game. Juan Hatchett drove into the paint and scored, adding an extra point after being fouled, scored again on the next possession, and the Warrias compiled a 12-point unanswered run to make it 63-60.

Time though was running out on the Blazers and a strategic time out brought them the opportunity to slow down the Warrias momentum.

2 minutes 45 seconds remained on the clock as the Blazers kept possession of the ball and pulled ahead 65-60 when Blyden went 2/2 from the free throw line and the Blazers did just enough to stay ahead, albeit with some help from sloppy Warrias play, to run out 68-63 winners.

Penn Junior finished with 35 points and Blyden 14.

Juan Hatchett led the Warrias with 28 points and 8 rebounds, whilst Albert Hatchett scored 10 and Nigel Todman picked up 10 rebounds.
