LUKA IS THE EYE OF THE TIGERS!

March 17, 2022

ONE MAJOR DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MOST TEAMS IN THE WARWICKSHIRE BASKETBALL LEAGUE DIVISION ONE WHEN THEY COME UP AGAINST TAMWORTH TIGERS IS THE PERFORMANCE OF THE STRIPES’ STAR MAN LUKA BOLDA, AND AGAINST TROJANS 2, LITTLE CHANGED AS THE BIG TALISMAN HIT OVER HALF OF THE HOME SIDE’S TOTAL (35)¬† AT THE RAWLETT CENTRE.

TIGERS WON THE GAME 67-42 WITH BOLDA NOTCHING 25 AND PROVING AGAIN, THAT HE HOLDS SUCH TALENT AND MAKES ONE WONDER WHERETIGERS WOULD BE WITHOUT HIM.

TROJANS 2, SPORTING THEIR  WHITE KIT UNDER THE DIFFICULT RAWLETT LIGHTS PUT ON A BRAVE SHOWING, PARTICULARLY IN THE FIRST HALF WITH BIKRAM BAL (PICTURED) LEADING THE WAY AS THEY MISSED BHUWAN LIMBU, BUT WHICH SAW THEM GO IN TRAILING 28-23. THINGS WERE DIFFERENT HOWEVER AFTER THE INTERVAL WHEN TAMWORTH ASSERTED THEMSELVES AND THE TROJANS OFFENSE FALTERED WITH A 24-7 SCORE IN FAVOUR OF TIGERS BEFORE EGIS BALIUNAS CAME INTO THINGS AS THE GAME WORE ON.

A GOOD HARD-FOUGHT CONTEST SHOWED WHAT A DIFFERENCE A GOOD PERFORMANCE CAN BE WHEN COMPARED TO A GREAT ONE.

SCORERS: BIKRAM BAL 12, BALIUNAS 12, WU 7, GUDLIEKIS 5, LUMLEY 2, BARR 2, TURNER 0, DICKSON 0, UBAVICIUS 0.
