Brook Green have scheduled in another whole day with Plymouth City Patriots on Sunday 29/10/2023.
The Plymouth City Patriots picked up their first win of the season Sunday afternoon over the impressive Sheffield Sharks.
Sunday’s game of the double header was perhaps the harder of the two fixtures. The Sheffield Sharks have made a number of late additions to their team, and have picked up a pair of wins prior to arriving in Plymouth. The game itself had a close, nervy first quarter, with neither side able to put their stamp on the game.
The Patriots hit the Sharks with a barrage of three pointers, starting with DeAndre Johnson, who would go on to have his best performance of the season.
"It's been coming..." started head coach Paul James, referring to his team's first win. He continued, "... we've gradually improved. We gave away our last two games, but we got it together today." He summed up the game by saying "we built up a strong lead, though we always knew Sheffield would come back, but we weathered the storm. For us to be a good team we need everyone to contribute."
