The second of CCR’s home season bouts saw the Bad Apples take on last year’s champions the Disco Beaters.
The lead changed hands many times during the close match-up and a last jam power play for the Disco Beaters saw another nailbiter going to the final buzzer. The Bad Apples managed to hold the Disco Beaters off to secure a 136 – 123 victory.
Results so far this season echo those of last season where the Bad Apples won their opening two games of the season, to be first through to the final.
Can defending Champions Disco Beaters recover from this set back and make it through to their second consecutive final? Can Queens of Steel stage a comeback taking them to the final for the first time? All eyes are on the next home team bout on April 14th where the Queens of Steel take on the Disco Beaters for the final spot.
The winner will take on the Bad Apples in the Grand Final on 2nd June.
