Heat fail to fire in tough bat­tle

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

AF­TER a four-week lay-off, the Port Dou­glas Heat re­sumed in the Mul­grave District Bas­ket­ball As­so­ci­a­tion com­pe­ti­tion last Thurs­day.

The de­fend­ing pre­miers played an­other top team, the Dragons, and both sides were off their game in a low-scor­ing en­counter.

Af­ter the first term the Heat were up 4-3 af­ter the first quar­ter but the Dragons won each of the re­main­ing terms to run out 37-30 win­ners.

The Heat had a few ex­cuses with no sub­sti­tute play­ers and were forced to rush to the Smith­field courts from work just to make the 6.30pm tip-off.

The team is look­ing for spon­sor­ships to help them de­fend their ti­tle and any­one keen to play is urged to at­tend train­ing at the Moss­man In­door Sports Com­plex on Wed­nes­day nights.

Sup­port­ers are also wel­come to cheer them on.
