SALISBURY Spires gave a good account of themselves as they began their first National League season against a strong Dorset Storm side.
Although Saturday’s under 16s South West Division contest ended in a 40-85 defeat, the Salisbury youngsters did themselves proud against a side who already have a year’s experience at this level.
Dorset started at a blistering pace and had put 20 points on the board inside the opening five minutes as the Spires struggled to adapt.
They then got into foul trouble in the second quarter leaving the first half 30 points down.
Salisbury rallied in the second half, restricting Dorset to almost half the total they had scored in the first half.
Playing with more sense and composure, they defended well, commanded by James Cobb in the middle while the offence worked harder to take care of the ball and earn scoring opportunities.
Chris Bywater, with 12 points, top-scored, while James Cobb, nine, and Sonny Pillay, eight, also contributed well in the second half.
Sam Rauh also chipped in with seven points, coming off the bench to offer Salisbury options on the transition from defence to offence.
On Saturday (October 31), Salisbury visit Torbay Tigers.
Their next home game is on Saturday, November 7 against Bristol Academy Flyers. Tip off at Bishop Wordsworth School’s sports hall is 2pm.
Anyone interested in playing basketball is invited to attend youth training sessions at Bishop Wordsworth’s School Sports Hall on Saturday’s.
