New Birth Outlasts Irish

This afternoon, the New Birth Warriors held off a Dublin Irish comeback to claim a revenge victory. Despite loosing to the 10-6 Irish in their last meeting, the Warriors jumped out to an early lead which they never relinquished, on their way to 61-59 win. At the half, New Birth was up by 11 points (32-21), but on the strength of solid guard play, the Irish cut the lead to 6 points at the beginning of the second half, as Dublin scored on six consecutive possessions. The Warriors were led in scoring by Jalani Rogers' 20 points. Other leading scorers for New Birth were DJ Tyree (13 points), Tyrell Carter (9 points) and Brandon Burks (8 points). The Warriors will be back in action tomorrow when they square off against the Dublin Celtics, the third of three Dublin-based travel teams.
