Taunton Revolution entered their third game of the season with some of the much familiar faces making a appearance, including the first game this season for Marcin Gladys back in the squad.
Unable to play due to injury, Revolution Captain Marc Eggleton would Coach the game and hope to provide some guidance to the team from the side and have an impact on the success of the game, even despite being able to suit up for the battle.
The first quarter was a decidedly one sided affair with Jon Howlett and Matt Acott connecting for 5 three pointers and a positive all round effort on ball movement. In the second, the Revolution would utilise their large selection of players and Pete Williams would add to his confidence and step up to make two consecutive big three pointers mid way through the quarter.
However, the North Devon side would keep the game close with some good defensive plays and a solid rebounding structure. Acott & Howlett would continue the hot shooting leading the team and finishing the half with 8 three pointers between them, and push the scoreline to 41-35 in favour of Taunton.
Matt Scott-Davies gave revolution a much needed explosive spark at the beginning of the 2nd half when it came to running at the opposition and scored 5 points in quick succession.
Marcin Gladys played an excellent rebounding game in the 3rd & 4th quarters and helped the Revolution get some size in the paint and still found time to contribute 7 much needed points in the game.
In the 4th Revolution would get into a little foul trouble but with the opponents missing 8 of their last 10 free throws, the game was sealed with some more good defense played by Taunton Revolution. In the last quarter the visitors would be half to only 9 points.
Final score 71-59 to Taunton. Scorers – Matt Acott – 19, John Howlett – 16, Matt Scott Davies – 7, Marcin Gladys – 7, Greg Siwicki – 7, Pete Williams – 6, Marcus Worth – 3, Alex Reid – 2, Ross Hughes – 2, Murray Heath – 2.
