BIG GUNS FLOOR TROJANS 2!

March 22, 2022

THE BIG GUNS TURNED OUT AS ARDEN GRIFFINS SHOWED TROJANS 2 WHAT CHAMPIONSHIP MATERIAL IS ALL ABOUT WITH A RESOUNDING 112-59 WIN AT SOLIHULL COLLEGE.

AFTER A RECENT LAPSE WHICH COINCIDED WITH THE ABSENCE OF LUKE HATFIELD BRINGING GRIFFINS ONLY¬† THEIR SECOND DEFEAT OF A SHORTENED SEASON, THE TROOPS WERE GALVANISED FOR THE VISIT OF TROJANS AND, DESPITE FALLING BEHIND EARLY ON, THEIR OBVIOUS CLASS TOLD AS THEY RACED TO A STUNNING VICTORY OVER TILE HILL’S SECOND STRING.

TROJANS HAD THE TEMERITY TO GO 12-6 UP AFTER A COUPLE OF TRIPLES FROM BIKRAM BAL AND AUDI GUDLIEKIS, BUT GRIFFINS COUNTERED WITH FOUR OF THEIR OWN BEFORE THE QUARTER BREAK WHICH SAW THEM 29-19 AHEAD.

BUT THE REAL DRAMA CAME MID-WAY THROUGH THE SECOND WHEN THE HOME SIDE TURNED ON THE STYLE AND, BETWEEN THE FOURTH MINUTE OF THE SECOND AND THIRD QUARTERS, THEY PILED IN A 32-2 SALVO WHICH LEFT THEIR VISITORS FLATTENED.

GALLANT AS THEY MIGHT BE, TROJANS HAD NO ANSWER TO THE ARDEN OFFENSE WHICH CONTINUED TO BOMBARD THE VISITING BASKET BEFORE ALLOWING GUDLIEKIS THE FINAL SAY IN A THRILLING LEAGUE ENCOUNTER.

SAM WORKMAN LED THE WAY FOR GRIFFINS WITH 34 AND HATFIELD ADDED 28 AS THE CHAMPIONS LOOKED TO RETAIN THEIR CROWN IN STYLE.

SCORERS: LINNET 13, GURUNG 10, BIKRAM 9, GUDLIEKIS 8, WU 7, UBAVICIUS 6, LUMLEY 4,BARR 2, TURNER 0.
