The second half was much of the same story. Reece again added two more to the Kings total before Harriers sparked into life scoring six straight points. Joe then added four more points for the Kings and Peter with two which saw Harriers also reply with two of their own. Joe

With both teams having already played each other in a very close match up more of the same was
expected in this game. The first quarter saw a low scoring start with Kings getting the first two points
on the board through Brad, Cornwall then replied with their first two points for Brad to then score
once more that saw the end of a fairly scrappy first quarter with Kings 4-2 in front.
The second quarter saw a much more productive quarter where Ant put the first two points on the board for the Kings. A flurry of baskets from Cornwall saw them take a four point lead for Joe to then add two more points for the Kings, a further four points from Brad saw the Kings keep up with the Cornwall consistent scoring to see the quarter score end 16-12 in favour of Cornwall.
The second half saw Cornwall put the first two points up, Kings then replied through Brad and Peter
who both scored two points to see the score to 16-18. Another flurry of Cornwall baskets saw them
take another good lead for Peter and Joe to add four more points to keep the score close heading
into the fourth quarter with the score being 20-28.
The final quarter saw a good start from the Kings with Ryan putting the first two points up for the Kings with a chance to add one from the free throw line but unable to score. Joe then added another two points for the Kings with again another free throw opportunity but unable to connect. Cornwall once more scored eight unanswered points for Brad to add two more to the Kings total. Another two missed free throws from Joe saw Reece pick up the rebound to score for the Kings. Joe then scored two free throws to see the game end 30-43 in favour of Cornwall. Not the best game from a Kings perspective but a strong lesson learnt who remain positive with the right attitude.
Kings expected this game to be the toughest one of the season but it really was an exciting game. Both teams started strong with Reece putting up the first 2 points for kings. Blazers stayed with Kings but some good shooting saw Brad, Joe and Reece once more add 6 more points to the Kings total and that saw the quarter end 8-8.
The second quarter was very similar both teams were locked in this exciting match with Reece picking up from where he left off scoring an impressive 12 points in the quarter. The Kings defending was solid but the Blazers did keep up and were also hitting some nice shots of their own. Both teams were at deadlock come half time and the score was 20-20 with it all the play for in the second half.
The third quarter saw a much different blazers team with a different approach and they decided to put on the full court press which Kings struggled to break. Blazers put up the first 15 points in the quarter before Anthony replied for the Kings scoring his first 2 points of the game. Blazers continued the more aggressive approach to the game but Anthony scored a lovely free throw for the kings, and that took the quarter to 23-41.
The final quarter was slightly more even Anthony scored first for the Kings but the Blazers continued with their impressive shooting and the rubber court was starting to take its toll on some players. Brad, Joe and Peter all added to the Kings total with a basket each, but it was not enough and Blazers took the game 31-57. A very good game and a big learning curb for the Kings who continue to improve every game.
Very much a game of two halves saw the Kings start very brightly. After the cougars first basket of the game the Kings were very much on top. Reece scored the first 2 points for the Kings in the 1st minute, Joe then added 2 more to the total with a bonus from the free throw line. Further baskets from Reece and Ryan saw the gap between the two teams widen with Cornwall having no reply. The Kings lead 11-3
The second quarter saw a better and closer match. Again Cornwall hit first but that saw Peter bag the Kings next 6 points with Cornwall also keeping up. Baskets from Brad, Joe and Peter added more to the Kings tally with Cornwall not scoring in the final four minutes. That saw the end of the half with Kings in front 23-11
The second half was much different, Cornwall came out flying scoring the first 4 points. Reece the replied for the Kings but that saw a flurry of Cornwall points with the Kings shots just not dropping. Cornwall scored a further 4 points to the Kings 2 and took the quarter 6-2 with the Kings still in front 25-19
The last quarter was set to be very tense and so it was. Cornwall scored 6 unanswered points as Kings were still struggling to find the net and the score was then 25-25. Brad then scored a much needed basket for the Kings. Cornwall hit back once more with Joe then replying for the Kings in a very back and fourth quarter. Cornwall then hit a further 6 unanswered points for Peter to score to close the gap to four.
Unfortunately the game ended there with Cornwall taking it 35-31. Very disappointing for the Kings but a great comeback from Cornwall.
Already having played the bears at home, Kings knew what to expect for this game. The match started at a high intensity with the Bears scoring the first 6 points of the quarter. Kings then replied scoring their first 2 points through Brad and then 2 more through Reece. The Kings defence remained strong throughout with Bears only managing 2 more points in the last four minutes. That saw the first quarter end 8-4 to the Bears.
The second quarter saw a much improved Kings team both offensively and defensively. The bears did score the first 2 points but that was the only 2 points in eight minutes for them. The Kings consistent quarter saw Anthony add the first 2 points to the Kings total, baskets through Reece, Brad and Joe saw the Kings make a much deserved comeback with the bears only managing 4 points in the quarter. The quarter and first half ended 12-12 with it all to play for in the second half.
The Kings started the third quarter the strongest with Wayne scoring the first 2 points. The Bears then replied with 2 points of their own. Another 2 points from Reece then saw a much stronger Bears team come out and showed much improvement themselves scoring 12 unanswered points and were very strong defensively which saw Kings struggle to find the net again in the quarter. That saw the quarter end 26-16 to the Bears
The final quarter was again a very even battle. Kings scored first with 2 points through Joe which was the start of a very back and fourth quarter. Brad scored 2 more for the Kings with the bears also matching the baskets scored. 4 more points through Joe and Brad in the fifth minute saw a consistent quarter from the Kings but once more the Bears were matching the points scored. Joe added 1 more point from the free throw line which saw the game come to an end 38-25 to the Bears. A much improved game for the Kings from the last time they played the Bears with the score a lot closer.
