Barnstaple Bobcats' disappointing season continued with a 84-71 defeat at home to Torbay in Division 1 of the Exeter and District Basketball League.Once again Barum got off to a slow start and the visitors raced to an early 12-0 lead. As both teams traded baskets in the second quarter the home side were able to keep the game close and trailed by only eight at half-time, thanks largely to skipper Adam Gregory's five first half three-pointers and forward Ben Taylor's impressive drives to basket. Barum began the second half at a higher tempo and came within two points of the Tigers, but this was as close as they got as Torbay pulled away and ran out comfortable winners.Barnstaple scorers: Adam Gregory 17, Ben Taylor 17, Carl Blair 10, Gareth Ellis 10, Vince Barry 8, Cliff Stapleton 7, Sam Bowman 2.
