Larry Gordon has big contribution in Kapfenberg’s 3OT win.

leave a comment »

The Kapfenberg Bulls had to take on the Gussing Knights only 7 days after they had taken a blow from the Kights losing with 5. In an effort to wipe the lose to the Knights the Bulls had to fight themselves through 3 overtimes. Although Kapfenberg led at halftime with 7 points, the Gussing Knights came back strong in the second half to tie the game at the end of regulation time. In a hectic and intense first overtime the teams were still tied, a second overtime was needed. But after second overtime the game was still tied at 78 -78. In the third overtime Kapfenberg took the lead when Scorers1st client Larry Gordon hit a three and Armin Woschank chipped in two shots. After that run of Kapfenberg the resistance of Gussing was broken and the win stayed in Kapfenberg. Scorers1st client Larry Gordon had a great game and a big contribution in the win scoring 20 points and grabbing 8 rebounds.
