WORTHING COLLEGE MEN’S BASKETBALL V BEXHILL – H – W 87-62

Worthing hosted Bexhill in an AOC League game. Worthing started the game strong by getting out to an early lead. Bexhill then answered back to Worthing’s strong start ending the 1st quarter by going on a run and going up by 9. The second quarter started and Worthing’s bench wanted to answer back. With great energy off the bench brought by Eddy and Cam, Worthing narrowed the deficit and held Bexhill to only 3 points in the whole of the second quarter and Worthing went into the second half up 45 – 33.

The second half was much of the same as Worthing played some great defence and scored very effectively in transition. A defensive push from the whole team and some good steals from Bryan and Fernando allowed Worthing to keep pulling away from Bexhill. Worthing carried on until the end with some aggressive offence from Gerald and great defence held Bexhill to only scoring 11 in the fourth. Worthing left with the win and the final score was Worthing College 87 – Bexhill College 62.

High scorers:

Cameron Matthews – 23 points, Bryan Salugao – 19 points, Fernando Pulle – 16 points, Gerald Brummerhoff – 13 points

WORTHING COLLEGE MEN’S BASKETBALL V BETHS GRAMMAR SCHOOL – A – L 69-46

Worthing travelled to Beth’s Grammar School for their first game in the Dynamik League. Worthing started the game on the front foot and got out to an early lead with Fernando and Bryan pushing the ball on the offensive end however we failed to stop Beth’s Grammar from getting rebounds and second chance points.

Worthing continued to try and push the ball in transition however the shots just didn’t seem to drop. Cameron Mathews gave Worthing a big push with some great offensive rebounds but couldn’t draw any fouls on his way back up to the rim.

In the fourth Quarter Worthing dropped their heads and lacked the energy to answer back to Beth’s Grammar late game run. The final score was Worthing College 46 – Beth’s Grammar 69. Worthing move on from this game to look forward to the AOC regional tournament next week.
