The Byron Beez narrowly lost to the Grafton Vikings when they slugged it out in one of the best games of the Men’s Sunshine Conference last Saturday at the Cavanbah Centre.
It was a fast and physical game and Byron were 12 down at the end of the second quarter and had to chase down a very well-drilled and skilled Grafton.
They did this with some well-executed steals and quick breaks.
The Beez maintained their composure and stayed fearless with their offence.
The had a one-point lead with 12 seconds remaining on the clock. Unfortunately that’s when Grafton hit a backbreaking three-point dagger to finish it at 71–69.
There are two more round games left for the Beez this season.
Next Saturday they play Ballina and then on Saturday June 2 they play Lismore. Both games are at home in the Cavanbah Centre at 7pm. A win in both these games will see the Beez into the semifinals.
