A's Can't Stop the Power

November 13, 2014 - National Basketball League of Canada (NBL Canada) - Orangeville A's News Release

MISSISSAUGA, ON.- The Brampton A's continue to struggle this season as they now sit at 0-5 after falling to the Mississauga Power 110-107 this afternoon. The Power have snagged both contests in the season series thus far.

The A's got off to a decent start as they traded baskets with the Power early on. Much to the dismay of Brampton, the Power began to knock down three-pointers that eventually led to an 18 point lead. The game amidst the second quarter seemed to be getting out of hand until A's floor general, David Tyndale stepped on the court. Tyndale despite his size, attacked the basket, defended tenaciously, and emotional- ly got his team going. Brampton ended the first half moving the ball well and attacking the hoop to tie the game up at 56 at the conclusion of the first stint.

The A's and Power performed equally offensively for the majority of the second half. Key defensive plays by Cavell Johnson and Brent Jennings sparked minimal runs, however, Mississauga gained the advantage in points off of turnovers to keep the A's from owning a comfortable lead.

TyShwan Edmondson finished the game with 21 points, while Johnson and Jennings added 14 points apiece. Johnson also recorded four blocks. Before exiting the game due to an injury in the fourth quarter, Tyndale registered 13 points.

Travis Releford of the Power led all scorers with 24 points.

The A's will have a few days off before hitting the court next Friday at home against the Saint John Mill Rats. The game will be available on line via as it is sold out for the A's Bullying Prevention program. The A's will take on the Power again Saturday, November 22nd to round out Bramp- ton's back-to-back home stretch at the Powerade Centre. For tickets please contact [email protected]
