The first team looked to improve on their performance from last week and having the privilege of playing at home in front of the home crowd is always a good experience. The game started badly with Carter scoring first but that was the last time that they looked threatening. The DHS team overpowered carter team with a good combination of inside and outside play. The first quarter ended with DHS up 26 – 09. Big men Christopher Fynn (13 points) and Moonga Chipili (14 points) dominated inside, as well as new comers Michael Lawernson (7 points) and Yanick Kabuika (9 points). The Carter players were just not able to secure any possession to seriously threatened the DHS team. The fist half ended with DHS 58 – 12 ahead after some good defensive efforts held Carter to just three points in the second quarter. The DHS team managed to score 35 – 7 points in the third quarter but did not look as convincing on defense as in the previous quarter. In the fourth quarter the clock was run and DHS ended up winning the game 113 – 22. Point guard Vuyo Mnini ended the game with a career high 14 points including two big three pointers, While Captain Dumisani Gebashe scored 24. Chango “the Nigerian” Mangena scored 10 points which highlighted how hard he has been prepared to work this season as he normally contributes only two points to the teams total. The only resistance from carter was from no. 6 Mnqoni who scored 11 points and was not overawed by the bigger and more aggressive DHS team. Next week see the team face off against Glenwood and Port Shepstone who both proved to be worthy opponents in last years fourth term encounters.
