Wildcats dominate West Logan Lighting in home game

THE Video Ezy Warwick Wildcats came home strong to overpower the West Logan Lightning in their first home game of the season at WIRAC on Saturday afternoon.

After a tight and evenly contested first half, the Wildcats held the lead at half-time by only one point 35-34.

The second half saw a complete turnaround, as the Wildcats' new bench depth came to the fore, and they outscored their opponents 62-26 for the half.

The final score ended up a complete blow-out, with the Wildcats winning 97-60.

Coach Jeff Clark was happy with the teamwork and maturity shown by the team.

"The best part is that Mike McDaniel was used sparingly, and we still have Sam Cremasco to come back into the team. We still have a lot of improvement left in us yet," Clark said.

The teamwork was demonstrated by the sharing of the scoring, with five players scoring 13 points or more - Josh Cremasco and Declan Starasts 24 points each, DJ Cremasco 16, Cameron Scutts 15 and Snowy Quinn 13.

Josh Cremasco also showed some great athleticism in the two massive dunks that he threw down over defenders.

The Wildcats now have a bye next weekend, and play in Ipswich the following week.

"We have only won one game out of four now," Clark said. "But if we can keep playing the way that we did today, we will be very hard to beat for the rest of the season.

"I can see a lot of good games on offer for the local spectators."
