The Brampton A’s continue to roll their way through the opposition with a renewed vigour in National Basketball League of Canada action.
On Jan. 25, the London Lightning became the fourth team to fall to the A’s since the team defeated the Halifax Rainmen on Jan. 9.
Opening the game with a two-point jump shot by Cavell Johnson, Brampton controlled all but the second quarter of Sunday afternoon’s matinee performance.
Even another 27-point game by Lightning forward Marvin Phillips and 18-point efforts by both Emmanuel Little and Brent Jennings were not enough to boost the Bolts past the A’s. When the final horn sounded, it would be Brampton coming out on top of a 119-116 decision.
Kyle Johnson had the hot hand for Brampton, picking up 17 points followed closely by former Lightning forward Zane Johnson.
The loss drops London to 12-9 on the season as the club heads out on the road for its next two games.
The first stop will be in Brampton where the Lightning will be hoping not just to snap their three-game winless streak but exact a measure of revenge from the A’s in Brampton on Jan. 30.
After that, it’s off to the WFCU Centre in Windsor for another go-round with the Express on Feb. 4.
