Contribute to support quality local journalism
Inverness City Lions overcame a numbers disadvantage to continue their winning run in Edinburgh against Pleasance.
The Highland side made the trip down to the central belt with just nine players, but still managed to come away as 81-61 winners.
The home side started well, netting with a high percentage of their attempted shots.
Inverness were not quick enough to close the opposition down, but strong offence moving up the court kept them in the mix, four points behind at the end of the first quarter.
With such a small squad, fitness was going to be key to getting a result, and before half time there were already signs that the City Lions had the upper hand in that regard.
One of the Lions’ captains, Maciej Splawski, took centre stage by scoring four three-pointers to give Inverness a 16-point lead going into the half time break.
