Match Report – Game Two v Crediton

The second game of the season would see the Revolution guys take themselves down to Crediton to face the local side and their daunting 7′ 3″ centre.

With Taunton a little under-sized as a team they would need to rely on good ball movement and decent shooting from range if they were to stand a chance. The tip inevitably went to Crediton and they struck the first blow going up 4-0, however this was quickly answered with a four point play from Revolution Guard Matt Acott to tie the game.

The rest of the quarter would see the teams trade baskets, with Crediton ending the quarter with an 8 point run and leading 18-12. In the second session every Revolution push was met by a Crediton score; despite Revolution taking the lead several times they could not hold on. Acott continued his strong play, and Matt Scott-Davies also provided great energy and scoring from the bench, but the size of Crediton meant too many easy scores at close range. The Revolution offence was really struggling and by half time the score was 27-36 in favour of the home team. Leading the way for Crediton were Williams with 14 and the 7′ 3″ Lewis with 14.

In the second half, Taunton picked up the scoring but were again helpless in the middle; Lewis continued the onslaught and despite Acott, Scott-Davis and Ben Williams all contributing well for Taunton, there was very little else coming from other sources in terms of points. Matt Acott would round out the game scoring Tauntons’ only 6 points in the fourth, and ultimately be voted MVP for the Revolution on the night. However it wasn’t enough, and the combined 54 from the Crediton duo of Lewis and second big man Wieczorek would take the game 74-52. Top Scorers for Taunton – Acott 22, Williams 13, Scott-Davies 9.


Marc – in but would be better if there was at least six without me just in case!
