The New Amsterdam Warriors basketball team made sure their trip across the Berbice
River was not in vain as they softened the Ithaca Hardliners, thrashing them 82-48 when play continued in the Legend Classic Basketball competition last Sunday at the Ithaca Basketball Court, West Bank Berbice.
The Warriors who were prepared and ready for battle declared war from the first tip off as they raced away to a 19-2 lead by the end of the first quarter.
The New Amsterdam Warriors continued their jolly run in the second segment pouring in another 19 points to take the half time break at 38-14. The pattern was much the same in the third quarter which ended with a 55-24 lead for the rampaging Warriors. The Hardliners somehow made things hard for themselves as they never got going until the last quarter when they scored 24 points to double their score to end the game at 82-48.
Warriors were led by a game high 24 from Randy Richardson with Theophlus Bess supporting with 19, Randy Creaser 14 and Leon Payne 11 leading the way.
The Hardliners were led by Mark David with 13, while Robert Edwards assisted with 10.
The competition is expected to continue on Sunday with the Warriors taking on Smithfield Rockers in a top of the table match up. The event is being organized by Vibert Garrett.
