Rainmen Losing Streak Hits Four with Defeat in Brampton
The Halifax Rainmen came out of the gate slow Friday night in a 102-92 loss to the Brampton A's, and the slow start on offense, coupled with early foul troubles ensured the A's maintained an advantage throughout the contest. The loss is Halifax's fourth in a row and drops the team to 7-9 in the Atlantic Division.
A low scoring affair through three quarters of play Halifax was never really able to find themselves on the court, once again experiencing a lack of success from the free throw line, with the team only connecting 50% of the time. 3 Point shot conversion was another area the Rainmen struggled with during the game, converting on only making 4 of 28 attempts. While the Rainmen were able to keep the game close through three quarters of playing, trailing 68-67, despite these issues, Brampton pulled away with a 34 point effort in the fourth quarter to seal the game.
Tyrone Watson led all Rainmen with 17 points. Sefton Barrett chipped in 14, and Joey Haywood added 13 points to the effort. Kevin Young led all Rainmen with 9 rebounds on the night. The Brampton A's were led in offense by Tyshwan Edmondson who had 19 points. Thomas Granado had a double double for the A's, putting up 18 points and bringing down 11 rebounds.
The Halifax Rainmen continue their mini-Ontario road trip tonight when they play the London Lightning with an 8pm AST game time.
The Halifax Rainmen will be back in action inside Scotiabank Centre on Sunday January 18th as we play host to the Island Storm. Tip Off time is 2pm with tickets still available for purchase through the Scotiabank Centre Box Office, Ticket Atlantic or by visiting www.rainmenbasketball.ca.
