Oldham shoots and scores, leading West to the win.

After a table turning 24 - 6 start, Centrals’ hopes were high to throw a spanner in West Adelaide’s top five contention.  Then Darrius Oldham outscored the Loins 17 - 15 in the second and the game’s momentum was tilting towards the Bearcats going into halftime only down by 7, erasing an 18 point deficit at the start of the period.

 

The third quarter was still tight as each team battled evenly on both sides of the court.  The change came in the fourth quarter. Oldham led the charge for the Bearcats dropping 19 (yes, nineteen!) of his round high 46 points in the final period.  

 

The Lions were steady in their attack but were unable to slow down Oldham, who outscored Centrals by 6 in the fourth.  Dave Humphries double-double (23pts & 13 rebs) was spirited however the addition of Patrick Thomas’ triple-double (13pts, 11 rebs, 10 assist) over 40 minutes was enough to comfortably push West Adelaide over the line for a 88 - 75 victory.

 

West still need to hold court against Forestville and North Adelaide to secure a top five finish.  Centrals have a score to settle in more ways than one with a Woodville rematch and can only hope to be a speed bump to Norwood’s finals run.
