It would turn out to be a tough game for Bolton who would discover right from the off that Whirlwinds travel faster than Bulls; as they struggled with Wakefield's fast-break game right from the off.
The first quarter left the Bulls trailing 3 points to 12.Things didn't improve in the much in the 2nd; the home team struggling to find their rhythm on court. They did however, improve on their score tally, putting up double the points they claimed in the first quarter.Half time score: Bolton Bulls - 9; Wakefield Whirlwinds 2 - 26
After the half-time break a struggling Bulls rallied and managed to win the 3rd quarter 9-6.The final quarter saw the Bolton Bulls kick on from a promising third quarter and chase the game down in a attempt to close the gap between the teams.
It was a solid effort from the guys but sadly, as is often the case in sport; chasing a game leaves you exposed defensively, and so it proved for the Bulls.Final score: Bolton Bulls - 30; Wakefield Whirlwinds 2 - 54
