THE Busselton Bullets opened their account in the BunburyBasketball Association competition on Friday night with a grinding 62 -46 winover the seasoned Tornadoes Red.
Coming off a competitive first up loss last week the teamcapitalised on the ability to field a full side and in particular the addedpresence of Adam Dehring.
A battle with combinations together with some untidy playmeant that the Bullets were unable to establish a lead early in the first half.
Frustration built until team management called a time-out anddemanded some structure in the offence.
Following this was some well-run attack led to Damien Lee whohit five consecutive field goals to extend to a 31 – 25 half time lead.
The ability to rotate a full complement of players started topay dividend in the second half as Tornadoes Red started to fade and theirenthusiasm withered as the Bullets managed to get all 10 players on thescoresheet.
Dylan Ness and Ethan Bowman showed great touch in the secondhalf, stretching the lead out to 20 point.
The last five minutes were played out as the result wassecured and the Bullets had their first win on the board.
The Bullets will have a spring in their step this Friday whenthey take on perennial cellar dwellers Tornadoes Grey.
Ryan Morgan, the main impetus behind the Bullets re-enteringthe competition, will be keen having left Tornadoes Grey to get the Bullets upand running this season.
With a few of the young guns at graduation a couple of theolder guys will get a chance to see if they have any pace in the older legsthis week.
A win will ensuregrowing momentum, a loss would be a considerable set back.
Action: Ryan Morgan from the Busselton Bullets is looking forward to taking on his old team in Tornadoes Grey on Friday.
