Worthing College men’s basketball team played BHASVIC at home in the AOC South League. Worthing starting 5 – A.Vincent, T.Pennels, A.Castro, F.Pulle, A.Betteridge. 

 Q1 – Worthing faced a full court press from BHASVIC early on, but it proved to be no problem for Worthing to break with Adam and Toby showing their experience keeping calm and controlling the game in the back court. Worthing knew BHASVIC preferred to play a fast paced offence, so the boys really worked hard defensively to slow them down, 1st quarter finished with Worthing down two points 14-1.

Q2 – Worthing defensively continued to contain BHASVIC forcing them to play a half court game. Tom Swindells came into the game providing some instant offence and Fernando continuously found gaps in the the BHASVIC defence. Worthing went into the half time down four points 28-32.

 Q3 – BHASVIC decided to pull out the full court press at half time which proved to be a good decision as they found more energy on the offensive end as a result. The game started to pull away from Worthing but offensive efforts from Fernando kept it close.

 Q4 – Coming into the final period Worthing down 41-49 found the gap too much to overcome and BHASVIC finished the game on top with the final score 55-73.

 Fernando Pulle top scored for Worthing with 18 points, Tom Swindells had 15 points. 




Worthing College faced Collyers in the AOC Basketball League today.

Despite LJ Millera starting the game strong with a 3pt shot, Worthing found themselves down early on against Collyers but a 10 point scoring streak from Tom Swindells off the bench late in the 1st quarter stopped Collyers running away with the lead and Worthing went into the 2nd period down 16-17.

2nd quarter – Collyers led for 9 minutes, but Toby Pennels sparked a defensive effort late in the period giving Worthing a 6-0 run and a 39-37 lead going into half time.

3rd quarter – Worthing moved the ball well scoring some fantastic team baskets but failed to limit Collyers scoring and the score was tied 55-55 going into the 4th.

4th quarter – Worthing continued the fantastic ball movement which seemed to wear Collyers down as Worthing ran away with the lead in the 4th to eventually win the game 77-69.

Excellent team performance from the boys as 5 players had double figures scoring, Aaran Vincent led all scorers with 17.
