RAY WILLIS lights up Port City Power's first win

RAY WILLIS returned to the McDonalds Gladstone Port City Power in stunning fashion with his 33 points steering his team to a 91-84 win against South West Metro.

It was the perfect response after a winless two rounds against Rockhampton Rockets and Gold Coast Rollers on Saturday night

Willis shot 33 points and grabbed 11 rebounds.

His efforts were well complemented with a solid defensive effort from Troy Robinson who took down 13 boards.

Jake Allen continued his outstanding form with 22 points while import Marvin Williams chimed in with 18 points.

Rollers won Saturday's match against Gladstone 74-73 in a pulsating match.

Willis and Allen shot 27 and 25 points respectively.

The Power led by seven points at half time.

But a 17-9 burst swung momentum back the Rollers' way and the visitors could not make any inroad into the home side's one-point lead at three-quarter-time.

Gladstone take on a strong Toowoomba side for its first home match of the season from 8pm this Saturday.
