Hawks Cruise To Easy Win

In what was the 250th Big V game for popular Centre Trevor Latham, the Hawks took care of business and the Corio Bay Stingrays on Sunday by 23 points on Sunday.

The game was not expected to be much of a challenge to the Hawks with the undermanned Stingrays without their two import players. Early in the contest though, the Rays took the challenge up to the home team who needed an to wake up from a slow start.

Jacob Gibson (22 points) was the first Hawks to get going and the Hawks quickly built a double figure lead that they didn’t relinquish for the rest of the game.

Scottie Stone (18 points) and Shaun Clarke (17 points and 9 rebounds) insured that the Hawks advantage stayed above 20 during the second half allowing Head Coach Ken Harrington to find extra minutes for Michael Solty, Matt Roberts and Kaide Fittolani. Nathan Truman continued his good form as did Matt Fennell and Matt Snow who had another 9 assist performance.

Latham enjoyed a fairly cruisy 250th game scoring 8 points, grabbing 6 rebounds and dishing off 3 assists. The big Hawks centre was a little reflective in the post-game glow of his teams 4th win of the new season.

“I was really going to retire at the end of 2013.” Latham said.

“I got a call from Snowy, became a Hawk and have won three State Championships. Doesn’t get much better than that.”

Next week will provide the Hawks with a much bigger challenge. Saturday night, Ringwood will head to the State Basketball Centre and battle the Knox Raiders who would love nothing more that knocking off the top placed Hawks. Game time is 8pm.
