Bradford Dragons lost their EBL Division One showdown with Medway Park in dramatic fashion.

Despite leading for almost the whole game, a Medway triple with ten seconds on the clock saw them go down 74-72.

A long triple from Bobby Edmunds on the buzzer saw Dragons end the first period 19-10 up and at half-time they were in front 42-38.

Medway shaded the third stanza to lead 64-59 at the final break.

A last-minute two from Vance Silcott put Dragons back ahead at 72-71 but smart play by Steve Vear drew the Dragons defence in for the kick-out to Luke Baker, who sank the dagger triple with just seconds remaining.

Bradford coach Chris Mellor said: “We led until just about the last shot but never really made a big enough run to allow us breathing space.

“We missed way too many relatively easy attempts around the hoop and failed to convert the technical foul shots but fair play to them, they executed well at the end and hit key shots in the last two minutes.”

Rihard Sulcs top-scored fore the Dragons with 19, Denis Scott weighed in with 14 and Michal Ciesla made 12. Vance Silcott also made a double double with 12 points and 12 rebounds.
