OXFORD CITY PHOENIX TAKE JET DOWN 61-30 AS 3 PLAYERS HIT DOUBLE FIGURES and all all players score
Wed 20 April 2016, Oxford City FC Indoor Arena, Berinsfield
Oxford City Phoenix turned up to their home court ready, with the addition of #10 Coleaux, but still with Moxey and Carmen out with injuries. Team Jet had Coach Peter Finegan on the sidelines, but still with only 6 players. Last week #31 Boyadjieva turned the heat on scoring 21 pts. "The key to the game is to keep Boyadjieva in check and defensively we just need to be tighter, faster rotations and cover the middle", said Phoenix Coach Sam Cricelli before the game.
Q1 started with Phoenix going 10-0 and #24 Emma Frost heating up early making 4 for 4 and finishing the quarter with 10 pts. Q2 started in similar fashion, but a series of Phoenix turnovers saw Team Jet going on a 11-0 run, by the break Phoenix were up 28-18.
Q3 saw Phoenix putting their foot down on the pedal and keeping Boyadjieva under control, but #7 Marti increased her efforts to help jet finish the quarter. Phoenix had now a healthy lead with 43-24. Coach Cricelli made changes in the last quarter, which paid off as Phoenix dismantled Team Jet 18-6 in it to take a well earned 61 - 30 victory and will be representing Oxford City Basketball in the League Cup Finals on 1st May.
Oxford City Indoor Arena Wed 13 April 2016 -32 OXCITY PHOENIX rally behind Emma FRONT's 24 points to defeat Team Jet in a great clash.
After a fantastic 16-6 first quarter lead Phoenix felt comfortable and brought their guard down as Team Jet began to prepare a comeback. After the break Jet went on a 16-10 rampage which left the visitors 3 points behind Phoenix and ready for a great finale.
In the 4th Quarter Phoenix drew first blood by going 9-0 in the first 4 minutes taking a substantial 44-32 lead. Then Team Jet intensified their defensive efforts outscoring Phoenix 12-2 and finding themselves only 2 points behind with 1 minute left in regulation. Phoenix' Surangi extended the lead to 4 points by scoring from the charity stripe, then high scorer Emma Frost added the last nail in the coffin by scoring 2 more from the line to take the W 50-44.
