TAMWORTH Thunderbolts overcame a slow start and vocal home crowd to beat Lithgow Lazers 80-72 and earn a final four berth in this weekend’s State League playoffs in Terrigal on Saturday night.

While eight Tamworth Thunderbolt boys’ and girls’ sides were playing off for Northern Junior League Division 1 and 2 titles in the Tamworth Sports Dome on the weekend, and the Australian Opals and Boomers were winning their opening games at the 2016 Rio Olympics, the Thunderbolt men were keeping their StateLeague gold hopes alive with a determined fightbackin the Lithgow Basketball Stadium

“It was a tale of two halves,” Thunderbolt coach John Ireland told The Leader after the game.

“They (Lazers) held us to just 29 in the first half and led by eight at half time, 37-29.

“We had a really good chat at the break about our execution and they came out ready to go. Really got stuck in, the rebounding was much better and we ran our transition better.

“We were up two points at three quarter time on the back of some great performances, especially from two of the young guys. Jayden Pryer and Ben Eather.Jayden made some big rebounds and Ben got a couple of big blocks out on the perimeter and one big alley oop.

“Matty Monckton was probably our best though. They struggled to cope with his speed and Luke Krug had a very solid game too, hit some big baskets. Kyle (Gupton)also made some big shots. He ran hard all game and scored 20-odd.”

“But we’re off to Terrigal now. Looks like we’ll match up against Sydney University Lions. They were first in their pool. It’s going to be a tough ask but we’ve built a really cohesive unit and I know they will all give 110 per cent.”

Meanwhile,Tamworth Thunderbolt Under 18 men Division 1 and 2 teams both won their Northern Junior League titles at the Tamworth Sports Dome on Sunday.

The Greg O’Toole-coached Division 2 side was an easy winner by more than 30 points to finish the season unbeaten in Div 2 with a 14-0 record.

The Jono Willis-coached Division 1 side had been unbeaten up until Saturday when beaten 59-58 by Port Macquarie Dolphins in the major semi.

They then beatthe Armidale Lions 84-48 in Saturday night’s final to earn a rematch with the Dolphinsin Sunday’sgrand final and scored a 76-61 win in a toughand intense match.
