ROAR in Dorset #ROARonTOUR

Great efforts from our ROAR u12’s in Dorset.  With the squad reduced to 7 players the away matches in Dorset were always going to be a challenge.

Pretty quickly illness reduced the team to a bare five – with injuries it became increasingly difficult.  Still every player stepped up and with growing confidence having been 14 behind, ROAR pulled within 4 of Dorset Storm in the 3rd quarter.  Fatigue played its part again though and Dorset pulled away in the 4th to finish 12 points clear.

To find 5 players to go back in against Plymouth Raiders was a challenge.  A very different style of basketball was required and the team executed it well.  This was a severe test and a great learning experience.  To score 11 against a strong, older, experienced Plymouth was down to determination.  To limit them to 57 was a bigger accomplishment.
So we come away knowing more about ourselves and flexible styles of play we need to employ.  The bonding of the 7 will be helpful as we close out the season.  With another player making their debut in the yellow of ROAR it could be a roller coaster finish.
