Match Report - Bolton Bulls 14 - 92 Worcester Wolves

Written by Michael 23rd April 2015

The season is slowly drawing to a close and Bolton Bulls hosted title chasing Worcester Wolves.

The starting five for Bolton Bulls: Tom Eckersley, Darren Birch, Graeme Lambert, Dale Speight, Steve Aston.

It was always going to be a tough game for Bolton Bulls coming up against a full court press from their opponents from the opening tip-off. Graeme Lambert’s two baskets would be the only points for the Bolton Bulls in the first quarter. Worcester Wolves would lay the foundations of what would become an ever-increasing lead scoring 16 points.

The second quarter would get no easier for Bolton Bulls, managing only a single basket scored by Darren Birch. Worcester would add 20 points to take a commanding lead at half-time.

Half-time score: Bolton Bulls 6, Worcester Wolves 36

The full court press would begin to take it’s toll on Bolton Bulls in the second half; the pressure would force them into misplaced passes and turnovers which lead to a large return in points for Worcester Wolves. Bolton themselves would add to their score with Tom Eckersley from the free-throw line (adding two) and two baskets from open play. Darren Birch would score Bolton Bulls final 2 points of the game.

Bolton Bulls worked incredibly hard as a team; something which sadly, the scoreline does not reflect. 

Full-time score: Bolton Bulls 14, Worcester Wolves 92
