Bolton Bulls vs Lancaster Bulldogs 22nd Septembee

22nd September 2013

Game number two was against the visiting Lancaster Bulldogs and the Bolton Bulls were on a high after opening the season with a win the previous week.

Unfortunately the Bulls struggled to convert last week’s strong finish from the start here, but the first quarter was a close one with only 2 points between the teams, finishing 10-8 in Lancaster’s favour.

More of the same in the second quarter, both teams struggling to find their rhythm and despite a high number of shots the ball simply refused to drop through the basket. The Bulls had a disappointing half but kept the game close, being only 6 points behind. Half time score: Bolton Bulls 14; Lancaster Bulldogs 20. Coach Dan earned his keep again at half-time as the Bulls came out strong in the third their game-plan started to come together. Unfortunately shots still weren’t dropping for either team; but Lancaster managed to squeeze another point onto their lead, edging a 7 point gap; the score going into the final quarter was: Bulls 23; Lancaster 31.

There was some strong defense from the Bulls in the final quarter in a bid to pull the game back and it began to pay off, forcing some turn-overs and easy points. It was a gallant effort and briefly a comeback was on the cards; sadly time was against them and a strong Lancaster Bulldogs team maintained their good lead to seal the win. Final Score - Bolton Bulls 33; Lancaster Bulldogs 42. Michael #8
