DC Jammers whip Colts 93 – 78 for second win
DC Jammers maintained their unbeaten record in their four match Goodwill series, this time dismantling National Club Champions Colts by a 93-78 scoreline on Sunday at the Cliff Anderson Sports Hall.
Unlike their opening hard-fought win against the Ravens, DC Jammers controlled the contest for the most part, with the closest spell being in the first period.
Experienced guard Glenn Stokes shot his way to a game high 21 points, which was littered with five three pointers. Similarly, Winston Robinson assisted with 18 points while Stephon Farley battled to 11 points.
For Colts, Shelroy Thomas recorded 14 points while sibling Sheldon Thomas was the next best shot with 11 points. Seventeen year-old Stanton Rose had his first taste of ‘Jammers’ and had a presentable nine points.
The first quarter was played at a frenetic tempo, with Colts outscoring the visitors by a 23-21 margin, but it was from the second period where the visitors seized control of the contest, taking the lead as they outplay the Colts 22-13 to lead 43-36 at the halfway mark.
In the third quarter, the ‘Jammers’ were up by as many as 14 (58 – 44) with 3:47 on the clock. It was also in the third period where the highlights were fashioned by Robinson.
The ‘dreadlocks-wearing player, on the defensive end, swatted English’s shot out of the air in a typical Lebron James chase-down fashion, when the Colts guard thought he had a clear path to the basket.
However it was the second highlight that stole the show, with English the recipient once more as Robinson completed a marvelous ‘alley-hoop’ pass from Rodney Mickens, and hammered it home for the ‘And-1’, much to the delight of the crowd.
However, the Colts cut the lead to single digits (62 – 53) heading into the final period but, any hopes of a comeback for Colts came crashing as DC Jammers recorded 31 points in the ‘fourth’, while restricting the Guyanese top club to 25 points.
Meanwhile in the exhibition fixture, Plaisance Secondary dismantled Tutorial High by a 88-35 scoreline.
DC Jammers will now turn their attention to former National club champions, Pacesetters, on Tuesday.
