Familiar faces find the mark in Magic win

Final Feb 28

(Moncton, NB: February 28th, 2018)

The Moncton Magic hosted the KW Titans Wednesday night at the Moncton Coliseum. Both teams coming off a loss entered the game hoping to start a late-season streak.

Despite a seemingly easy 12-point lead in the 1st, the Magic struggled in the second quarter allowing the Titans to go up 58-56 at half. However, always up for a game, the Magic caught a second wind in the last two quarters and snatched the W 125-108 at home.

Corey Allmond proved to be the defining factor and was awarded player of the game for his 7 hotshots from the arc, and 3/3 from the line for 30 total points.

Terry Thomas made a huge impact in Wednesday's game as well; he put up an 11-rebound 28-point double-double for the home team.

Next up on the box score were Jeremy Williams, Jason Calliste, and Al Stewart who ended at 17, 14, and 12 points respectively.

Derek Hall managed to perform amidst a struggling Titan team; he dropped an astonishing 19-rebound 20-point double-double for KW. Justin Hurtt was next in line with 19 total points.

The Magic now travel to Saint John (March 1st) for a Thursday night game vs. the Riptide, before returning home Sunday March 4th to host the London Lightening.

With just 8 matchups until playoffs the Magic now look more than ever, to keep up their high-energy play, as well as 2nd place spot.
