Wolves need swash­buck­ling vic­tory

Wanneroo Weekender - - Sport -

THIS is it for the Joon­dalup Wolves in the State Bas­ket­ball League.

Win against the Ger­ald­ton Buc­ca­neers in game two of the semi-fi­nals at Joon­dalup Bas­ket­ball Sta­dium on Satur­day night and their sea­son stays alive.

Lose, and they fin­ish a sec­ond con­sec­u­tive year know­ing they had the abil­ity to win a cham­pi­onship but stum­bled at a cru­cial stage. The Buc­ca­neers de­feated Joon­dalup 84-77 in game one in Ger­ald­ton last Satur­day.

They will con­test game three in Joon­dalup on Sun­day if the Wolves level the se­ries.

Trian Iliadis con­tin­ued his strong fi­nals se­ries for Joon­dalup in game one with a team-high 22 points. Rob Hunt­ing­ton re­turned the team’s only dou­ble-dou­ble with 12 points and 11 re­bounds.

The Wolves have plenty to think about it when it comes to the Buccs’ star US im­port Dwayne Ben­jamin who took 34 points and 12 re­bounds, shoot­ing at 12-21 from the field.
