Power spoil A's home opener

November 7, 2014 - National Basketball League of Canada (NBL Canada) - Orangeville A's News Release

BRAMPTON, ON - The Brampton A's (0-2) looked to upset the defending National Basketball League of Canada Champions Windsor Express (1-1) Friday night. After getting out to a decent start, the A's fell 103-97 to the Express.

The A's Cavell Johnson kicked things off with an early basket in the paint to get momentum flowing for the team. The Express matched the A's intensity causing a close battle throughout the first quarter. Although Brampton never led in the first half, they managed to stay within single digits of the Express lead. As both teams struggled with taking care of the ball, the A's gained the slight advantage in points off of turnovers, allowing them to stay within striking distance.

Brampton headed to the locker room at the half down 51-43.

In the second half, the Express seemed to have the game under control until a last minute run by the A's. Brampton caught fire from three point range at the bottom of the last quarter. Unfortunately, the A's down to the wire run was not enough to upset the Express on their home court.

Knocking down 5-of-6 from beyond the arc, Brampton's Richard Armadi led all scorers with 23 points and 10 rebounds. Johnson added 20 points, while Flenard Whitfield registered a doubledouble of 14 points and 10 rebounds.

Leading the way for the Express was Quinnel Brown who finished the game with 19 points. The A's will be back in action this Sunday as they take on the London Lightning on the road.

Brampton will face off against the Lightning again at home this Tuesday, November 11th, for a special Remembrance Day contest at the Powerade Centre. For tickets please contact [email protected]
