Lions maul Pumas out of Top Four
- Updated: July 29, 2010
The Ricoh Pumas were eliminated from the top four spots in the SuperSport wheelchair basketball series at the weekend.
This after a severe beating by the AGA Matlosana Lions who prevailed 89-41.
Then, poor shooting by the Visa Wings saw the Blades being given a life-line in the final game of the weekend’s programme. This saw the Bladerunners coming up tops 49-40.
The weekend action sees the Bladerunners topping the series with 25 points, two points ahead of the Lions and with the Eagles a further three points in arrears. Rounding off the top four are the Visa Wings with 17 points.
The big showdown on 1 August is between the Blades and the Discovery Eagles which takes place at 9am on Sunday followed by the Lions and the Wings at 11am.
Log positions don’t look like changing too much but the four top teams deserve recognition for making it into the quarter finals.
Weekend results were:
Pumas 49 Wings 48, Eagles 61 Lions 49, Blades 78 Pumas 56, Wings 57 Eagles 53, Eagles 54 Pumas 49, Lions 45 Bladerunners 61, Lions 89 Pumas 41, Wings 40 Bladerunners49
The transfer period now opens on 2 August and closes on 9 August for any player that was eliminated from the top four to be inducted into the remaining franchised teams.
