DUFF'S BOTTOM , Tortola, VI – Led by 30 points from Demoi Hodge, West Gunners destroyed Bayside Blazers, 111-67, on Saturday October 10, 2015, when play in the Hon Julian Fraser Save the Seed Basketball League continued at the Save the Seed Energy Centre in Duff's Bottom.

Rowan Victor opened up the game with a 6 point run for the Gunners, who brought a large and vociferous crowd with them to the gym.

By the end of the 1st quarter, Demoi Hodge had West Gunners spectators on their feet with a scoring sequence of his own, totaling 11 points including three “3’s”.

Ray D. Victor took control in the second period as the Gunners held on to their advantage, despite some excellent offense by the Blazers. A Victor to Victor move had the crowd leaping and jumping and further long range shots from Hodge raised the roof and put the score to 62-29 at the half time break.

A rout of epic proportions was now being celebrated by the West fans and they weren’t to be disappointed.

Rowan Victor and Hodge piled on the misery in the third quarter with the score reaching 75-40 and then 85-46. The Gunners reached 100 with 4 minutes left in the 4th quarter and with the fans relishing every point from the Gunners and booing each time the Blazers scored the game was done.

The loudest cheer didn’t come at the final whistle though, but rather when the Blazers accidentally tipped a rebound into their own basket and with the final score 111-67, that summed up their night perfectly.

Hodge added 8 rebounds, 6 steals and 5 assists to his night’s work, whilst Rowan Victor scored 20 points with 5 assists, Ray D. Victor 10 with 13 rebounds and 11 assists, Jamarli James 12 points and Delvon Leonard 10 points and 5 rebounds.

For the beaten Blazers, Frankly L. Penn Jr scored 18 points, but didn’t play in the second half, Dione M. Blyden could only manage 7, but added 8 rebounds and 8 assists, Sandy E. Nadal hit 16 points and pulled 8 rebounds and Kyle L. Abraham notched 8 points.

Spartans vs Starz

Earlier, the Spartans had an epic victory, 81-75, over the Starz.

Heading into the last quarter, the teams were exchanging scores at will and with 5 minutes remaining were tied at 65 apiece. The Spartans then took a slender lead into the last four minutes before a needless foul on Devorn Furlonge put the Starz level again.

Undeterred, the Spartans remained resolute and went on a 6-0 streak that put the game away.

Requan Fahie notched 26 points with 14 rebounds, Tyler Cameron 25 points with 15 rebounds, Lenroy Grant 8 points with 9 rebounds, and Hakeem Penn 8 with 5 steals.

For the Starz, Devorn Furlonge netted 28 points and grabbed 13 rebounds, Stephon Caul had 22 points and 10 rebounds and Tafari Winchester 15 points.

Z6ne 6 Ballers vs Splash Brothers

The first game of the resumed League had seen Z6ne 6 Ballers come from way behind to beat Splash Brothers 95-87.

As many as 18 points down deep into the game, the Ballers staged a remarkable fight back, the final one of many during the game to run out victors by 8 points, with 33 points from Nathaniel 'Nat' Malone and 28 points from Zanell Joseph. Deshawne Douglas had 13 points and 13 rebounds.

Splash Brothers were led by 25 points from Shamoii Dagou and 18 from Michael Benjamin. Ashfield Frett picked up 16 points and 10 rebounds and Charlesworth Georges 13 points and 7 rebounds.

Dagou was particularly lethal from behind the three point arc as Splash Brothers seemed headed to an easy win. Malone and Joseph, however, 'took the bull by the horn' to inspire an incredible Z6ne 6 Ballers comeback victory.

      Boss, Saturday night they hired REAL DEAL REFEREES! And because of that the game ran fair! The night when Splash Brothers beat West Gunners, West Gunners was playing against five men plus the two referees! The game was not fair! However, I would say that the young man was wrong for hitting the referee. But bare in mind, when the Run It Red disrupted a game from playing it was the same Referee who refereed the game with West Gunner and Splash Brothers that refereed Run it Red game! Splash Brothers won that game , but lets see if they meet up again what will happen!
