Cats take a loss against Brentwood
Cambridge Cats 74 – Brentwood Fire 84
Cambridge travelled to Essex this Saturday to play Brentwood Fire in the East Midlands Division Four encounter. Cats started strongly against Brentwood moving the ball well and finding the open man, early foul trouble for big man Paolo Costa gave the opportunity for William Reid to step in and contribute on both ends of the floor. New acquisition Harry Veysey put on a good display with 15 points and intelligent play on both ends, Sam Richardson once again top scored for Cats and is one again showing why he is the cats go to man. A second quarter meltdown cost cats in this game with the ten point deficient proving to much for cats to claw their way back to victory. Cats will look to rebound and get back on track in their next game against play off rivals College of west Anglia Fury, with COWA already owning one victory over cats in the National Shield 3rd round Cambridge will be eager to win this time round, coming into this game Cambridge were looking to get themselves back into the play off picture, with Barking the only team left undefeated in the conference it has become a four team race for the second playoff spot between Northants Brentwood COWA and Cats. This being the last season of the current lay out for the national league, it will be a fantastic season with lots of twist and turns still to come.
