Surrey Scorchers 76 Worcester Wolves 72

Scorchers battled back from a 14-point deficit to defeat the Worcester Wolves at Surrey Sports Park!


Connor Cashaw led the way for Surrey with 18 points, while a big fourth quarter display from British rookie Evan Walshe helped Creon’s side over the line to their first win of the season.


Worcester raced out to an early 8-1 lead thanks to former Scorcher Matthew Bryan-Amaning.


But Connor Cashaw refused to let the Scorchers fall into a hole, and led the charge for the home side to bring the deficit back to within two points.


A slow second quarter was won by Worcester with impressive shooting from British rookie Josh McSwiggan.


Scorchers big man Emondre Rickman battled hard inside to keep Scorchers afloat, but found themselves trailing at the interval – despite Cashaw’s 18 first half points.


The home side came out fighting in the second half with Captain Tayo Ogedengbe and Lovell Cook leading the charge.


But Bryan-Amaning continued to dominate inside for the travelling side to keep them ahead.


Scorchers stayed within touching distance, and it was a spark off the bench from British rookie Evan Walshe and Martelle Mclemore that led the way for Surrey down the stretch.


Some key baskets from Tayo Ogedengbe and Walshe helped them over the line, clinching a 76-72 win on their home floor.
