One and Two is the Theme for Shock Teams

Apologies for the down time, but the website is back up and running and here is the latest update on Swindon Shock Local and National teams.

 

Shock National got their first win Against Essex Blades before losing a late game by 3 points to Oxford Brookes University.  Shock are welcoming the bye week to get a few injuries sorted out and will look to be ready for a home game against Solent in a few weeks time.

 

Locally Shock won their first game against Speedwell, with Junior players committing to an all out press that helped the team overcome a 10 point deficit before pulling off a victory.  The road appeared a difficult task for the young team as they fell Devizes followed by a nail bitter at home to Totterdown.  Full match reports to come:

Shock Fall in Finals to Northants

Swindon Shock season came to an end this Sunday as Shock could not make up the half-time 5 point  gap to Northants in the NBL Finals.  Despite an outstanding shooting performance from Spencer Wells and Dominik Sajovic Shock trailed the majority of the game.   Closing the gap to 2 points late, Shock would go on to miss 11 free throws in their finals performance, ultimately costing them a chance at a finals victory.

Despite the loss, Shock players held their head’s up high and will now apply for Div3 promotion with hopes of meeting their new arch rival in future matches.  For more information please see the Basketball England  Finals
