Warriors inch closer to play-offs


Share post:

FROM FOUR YEARS down to two wins, First Works Warriors’ post-season drought is almost at its end.Former MVP Corey McDonald and Kareem Farrell scored 18 points apiece as the Dayrells Road side inched ever closer to a belated return to basketball’s Premier League play-offs after Thursday’s comfortable 85-62 victory over Patriots at the Wildey Gymnasium.Last post-season participants in 2006, Warriors (10-3) can ensure they enter the Final Four no lower than third with at least two wins in their final three fixtures, which include games against reigning champs Cavs (11-2), Sonics (7-6) and DC United (2-11).But Warriors kept their focus on the immediate task at hand, leading from start to finish after McDonald buried two quick treys as part of their opening 8-0 run.Warriors actually started every period, but the fourth with eight unanswered points, yet still needed a 19-5 surge towards the end of that final quarter before finally putting away a six-man Patriots squad. Anthony “Bill” White topscored for Patriots with 19 points. (JM)
