The Rockingham Flames men’s team are in a top-four position following wins against the Willetton Tigers and Joondalup Wolves over the weekend. The Tigers were looking to bounce back from last week’s loss at Lakeside, and the Flames didn’t take long to blow them out of the water. Rockingham led the way to end the first quarter 34-18 and this continued throughout the evening. The defending champs opened up a 26-point lead during the second quarter with that advantage blowing out to 42 in the third, and 43 in the fourth before they ended up beating the Tigers by 32 points. The Tigers dropped out of the top four at 10-5 with the back-to-back losses. The Flames continued to dominate on Saturday night to down the Joondalup Wolves 114-102. The Wolves attempted to snap their two-game losing streak, but it wasn’t enough to stop Rockingham. Flames opened the first-quarter to lead by 16-points before ending 32-17 by quarter-time. The lead continued to grow to 18 points in the second term and the defending champions were still in control 60-48 at the main break. Joondalup hit back in the third quarter with 29 points to 21 including going on an 8-0 scoring run to make it a contest, but Rockingham had the answers in the fourth period to go back up as much as 19 and eventually won by 12. The victory keeps the Flames in top spot with a 13-3 record having now won five straight while the Wolves are struggling at 9-7 having lost three in-a-row. Devondrick Walker was an unstoppable presence once more for Rockingham with 35 points, seven assists and three rebounds on shooting 13/22 from the floor and 6/12 from three-point territory. Marshall Nelson added 27 points, seven rebounds and six assists for the Flames, Jeremy Combs 14 points, five boards and three assists. Joondalup’s Quinton Dove delivered 27 points, five rebounds and two assists with Bryan Michaels adding 25 points, seven boards and five assists, and new big man Ioannis Dimakopoulos 17 points, seven boards and five assists. Rockingham Flames will take on the South West Slammers on June 23 at 8.30pm at the Eaton Recreation Centre and the Warwick Senators on June 24 at 8pm at Mike Barnett Sports Complex.
