Tigers whimper

January 23, 2010

Everton Tigers were their own worst enemies in last night’s local derby against Cheshire Jets, losing 86-96 after a frustrating final quarter. Despite an 18 point lead at half-time, Tigers were clearly missing the potent attacking skills of Kevin Bell and James Jones, both out due to injuries.

Despite the best efforts of Olu Babalola, Tigers offered little spark during the final quarter, and could have no complaints about the Jets’ victory. With their support in fine voice all evening, the away team gave a comprehensive display of tightness, organisation and intelligent movement. It’s difficult to argue with away wins like this.
