British Champs Tier 2 South: Batter C Power on the road again

Some people are lucky enough to be gifted with a godmother to look after them. Well Batter C Power seem to have a poltergeist looking after their Brit Champs’ trip! No lost kit on the highway this time, just a fifth of the team stuck at Victoria Coach Station. No hard feelings towards the coach driver, we know how hard it is to be an early riser on a Sunday morning.

Fortunately, there’s an happy ending.

They’ve managed to reach Taunton on time to play against SWAT and what a game!! The first fifteen minutes were intense and it was very tight. At the end, Batter C Power established its game and came back home with a win (86-281). Next British Champs’ game being an home game, let’s hope their poltergeist will take a day off!
