League champions Burger King Clapham Bulls were challenged by knockout kings Station Hill Cavaliers, but came away with a narrow two-point victory in the opening exchanges of the 2020 Barbados Amateur Basketball Association’s Co-Operators General Insurance Premier League on Thursday night.
Bulls survived a fourth-quarter comeback by the Cavs to emerge 67-65 winners in the second game of a double-header at the Barbados Community College.
The Cavs, who depended on their bench for as many as 45 points, held a 26-23 lead at half-time before the Bulls took control in the third quarter to go ahead 48-40 after outscoring their opponents 25-14 in that period with an 11-point run.
It was not over for the Cavs just yet as they came storming back in the final quarter, which they dominated 25-19.(HG)
