Warriors Survive Tigers’ Late Push At Home

Woodville Warriors: 90 | Southern Tigers: 81

The second game in the Premier League's second back-to-back weekend saw the Southern Tigers and Woodville Warriors clash. The Warriors walked into this one looking to snap a 3-game losing streak while the Tigers looked to build on their 2-game win streak

The Warriors opened the game well and took a good 6-point lead almost half way through the opening quarter. Woodville big man Daniel Carlin was his usual self, scoring a beautiful post move despite the heavy defence.

The opening term wasn’t all Woodville as the Tigers brought their game on both ends of the floor demonstrated through Decorey Jones’ (12-points, 8 rebounds and 3 steals) steal and dunk to bring his team back to a 10-point margin. Michael Nwelue (15-points, 8 rebounds and 3 assists) also showed his talents by saving the Tigers on the final play of the first quarter with a buzzer beating block.

The Warriors moved the ball around well and resulted with 23 total assists with 5 each coming from both Luke Stanbridge and Daniel McKee. The Warriors dished more than their visitors by 6 which may have impacted the final scoring outcome.

Anthony Drmic did his best to keep his side in the ball game flirting with a double double with a whopping 30-points and 9-rebounds.

Daniel Carlin again boasted his size with both a big put-back dunk and a rim-rocking baseline slam dunk. These were only 4 of his 19-points. Carlin was also strong on the glass, pulling down a sturdy 11 boards.

Jordan Dodman had tough game as he found himself in serious foul trouble recording 4 fouls and a technical before halftime. Dodman was visibly frustrated during his time in the game and fouled out during the third period.

Despite being down, the Tigers continued to chip away at their margin cutting it down to 2-points at half time. The scores were set at 42-40 with a half remaining.

Woodville continued to play well after halftime and began to run away by gaining a solid 14-point margin with 5-minutes remaining in the 3rd. Despite back-to-back baskets for Nwelue, the margin was still in double digits at three quarter time. The big plays and dunks throughout the contest thus far were not over yet, as, Woodville sunk a Hail Mary shot at the three-quarter time buzzer to finish the term in style.

With the visitors trailing by only 15-points, a comeback was possible and set the tone for a high-octane final period. Drmic continued to play well and soon cut the margin to 10 after sinking a nice triple. 

With the end in sight, the Tigers continued to push for a comeback victory although Ng calmly sunk his signature 3-pointer to push Woodville’s lead back out to 7-points. He struck once again after Jones gambled on the passing lane and lost resulting in another Ng three.

To add insult to injury, Carlin finished an alley-oop dunk adding some more pleasure to the crowd and scoreboard.

The snapping of the losing streak cuts the differential between them and the Panthers who are currently both 2-points and percentage ahead.

On the other hand, this loss extends the gap between the Tigers (3rd on percentage) and the leading North Adelaide Rockets.
