The Bulls recorded an impressive win against Aces Sky to remain three wins clear on top of the Bunbury Basketball Association’s A-Men ladder.

The third-placed Aces jumped out of the gate early in the contest to establish a six-point lead by the end of the first quarter on Friday night before the Bulls turned the tables.

A 13-point second quarter for Travis Durnin (38 points) helped turn the game as his side led 45-39 at the half.

Momentum stayed with the Bulls through the second half as the side went on to win 87-68. Clive Weeden chipped in with 33 points while Archie Hall led the scoring with 21 for the Aces.

Tornadoes Black registered a comfortable 89-51 win against the bottom-of-the-table Eaton Eagles to move five-wins clear of the Aces in second place.

Jason Smith (27 points) and Matt Leary (22 points) led the way in the win.

The final match of round 19 resulted in a four-point Dunsborough Oilers win against Tornadoes Red.

Harry Mooney (20 points) was a major contributor for the Oilers while Michael Lay (21 points) was instrumental for the Tornadoes side.

There was only one game played in round 19 of the A-Women’s competition after Tornadoes Red was forced to forfeit against Dunsborough Oilers.

It was a commanding 84-52 win for Tornadoes Black against Aces Sky.

Javene Fitch (20 points), Cian Parsons (19 points) and Zaya Lilly Black (17 points) set the pace as the Tornadoes led from start to finish.
