Tornadoes Red continued their run of wins, beating the Eaton Eagles by 40 points on Friday night.

After a slow start from the Eaton Eagles — not scoring until just before the seven-minute mark — Jacob MacLeod-Paterson got the ball rolling for the Eagles who trailed Tornadoes Red by only eight points at quarter-time.

Thar margin grew to 18 points by half-time thanks to some all-round offensive pressure from Tornadoes Red.

The third-quarter saw domination from a stellar Mitchell Hough who scored 14 points to help push Tornadoes Reds’ lead out to 28 points at the end of the quarter.

A massive 35-point quarter from Tornadoes Red against a 21-point quarter from Eaton Eagles saw the final score sit at 127-87.

Jacob MacLeod-Paterson was massive, scoring 44 points for Eaton Eagles, with eight three-point shots, the most of the game.

Tornadoes Red will face stablemates Tornadoes Black on Tuesday night, while the still winless Eaton Eagles will face-off against second-placed Bulls Gold.

Bulls Gold won by forfeit against Bulls Maroon, resulting in the first technical loss Bulls Maroon have received all season. They now sit only one game clear at the top of the ladder.

The Conquerors v Aces Sky match did not take place due to the sides having heavy involvement in the Barry Cameron Memorial Basketball Carnival in Perth, with the Bunbury Basketball Association announcing this game will be rescheduled.
