Late lapse costs Suns a vic­tory

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - FIND A -

THE stuff­ing was knocked out of the Coffs Har­bour Suns dur­ing the first match of the week­end’s road dou­ble-header.

The men’s Divi­sion 1 team looked on track to record its first win of the sea­son when it led Manly War­ringah by six points at the fi­nal break.

The lead stretched to eight points with eight min­utes to play but the Sea Ea­gles scored 22 of the last 27 points to break Coffs Har­bour’s hearts.

Mat­ti­son Devine led the Suns’ scor­ing, nail­ing five three-point­ers on his way to 21.

Com­ing up against the stronger Cen­tral Coast Cru­saders on Sun­day the Suns were never in the hunt.

A run of 13 straight points early of­fered hope but the Cru­saders upped the pace to win by a com­fort­able 43 points.
