Port City Power?s rising talent prove their worth
THE FUTURE of local basketball continues to shine brightly in the harbour city after an encouraging display from the Port City Power men's development squad against Hervey Bay on Sunday.
The squad team suffered a narrow 66-55 loss to the Hurricanes, but there were plenty of positives to be gained from the performance.
Chris Lynch continued his recent good form with the development squad, scoring 14 points.
He may not be spending too much time with the development squad after playing 12 minutes with the Power's Southern Cross team.
Captain Ray Cooper again led from the front, while Matt Pirie also chipped in with 10 points in a solid performance.
Coach Michael McVicar was pleased with his team's performance and said their defensive intensity was a feature of the match.
'Our defence was sensational right throughout the match, Hervey Bay are a really well-drilled side,' McVicar said.
'I thought we played very well over the four quarters and to push them for the entire game is great for our confidence.'
