Shamrocks take it on the road to #8 Binghamton, not a good outcome
Saturday night at Davis College in Johnson City, NY, the Scranton Shamrocks first road game of the year, they got together with a familiar squad in the #8 Binghamton Bulldogs. Shamrocks started their season off a few weeks ago with a 10 point win over the Bulldogs in Scranton. This outcome was a lot different. The Bulldogs started fast with a 6 point lead at the end of the 1st. The 2nd quarter, the Shamrocks started to come back and tied the score at the half, 61-61. The 2nd half was another story. Binghamton puts on 36 points in the 3rd quarter to take a 97-82 lead going into the 4th. The Shamrocks could never get back into the game. Final was Binghamton 132-107.
Saturday, December 8th, Scranton Shamrocks back on the road to the #1 ABA team in the Country, Syracuse Stallions. This will be another tough matchup as the Shamrocks fell short by 4 points in an earlier meeting with the Stallions.
