Borisfen lose again, Ogre improve to 5-3

OGRE – Saturday adds another L to Borisfen’s win/loss column, as Ogre/Kumho Tyre dismantled the visitors without mercy, shutting down their offense to take the 75-45 victory. Ogre now improve to 5-3, while Borisfen sit on a pitiful 0-9 record.

 

After scoring the two opening points, Borisfen wouldn’t have the opportunity to hold another lead, as Ogre/Kumho Tyre raced off with a 12-0 run to jump ahead by double-digits. Nevertheless, The Belorussians proved that it was not yet over, as they got back into the game before the first quarter was over.

The two sides battled pretty well for nearly half of the second quarter as well, as the margin was just five points, but the Latvians finally managed to break through – they put up a 13-nothing run and amassed a 38-22 lead at halftime.

The margin only increased over the second half, as it reached game-high 36 points for Ogre in the fourth. It was all said and done early on, and all that mattered was the final score.

Rihards Zebergs was the leading scorer with 16 points to his name, while Lauris Mizis came close to a double-double of 14 points and 9 rebounds. Gints Antrops added 12 points to the tally, while Karlis Apsitis and Janis Poznaks chipped in with 11 points and 10 rebounds, respectively.

Vytautas Kamarunas scored 11 points to lead Borisfen, while Maksim Kozlovets added 9 points to the total.
