Friendly against Trojan Colts
Frindly against local rival Tile Hill Trojans Colts team
This summer has been eventful for the new basketball team in Rugby. They have already competed in a number of pre-season fixtures and are weeks away from playing their first game in the Warwickshire Basketball League. In their first pre-season fixture Rugby Rage had a tough task against a well established Tile Hill Trojan team. Having never played together as a team, Rugby Rage found it hard to create many scoring opportunities; however they defended well enough to keep the Tile Hill team from building any significant lead in the first two quarters. After the first quarter Kurtis Johnson and Prit Palmer got into the game and started to move the ball around the court with a lot more ease, scoring it seemed every time they got the ball. Arek Lis and Zack were excellent off the bench and defended very well. However, Jóse Campins and Marcin stole the show by dominating the front court. Marcin was a man on a mission top scoring with 22 points and getting over half of the teams rebounds. With the lead switching between both teams Rugby Rage held on at the end to win the game by 6 points.
