The Blacktown Storm Youth League men's basketball team has a chance to rewrite history having won through to their second finals weekend of the NSW division 1 competition.
The young Storm team surprised all but their own fans last year by winning through to the grand final, only to fall to the red-hot Central Coast Crusaders.
Saturday's win has set up another clash with the Crusaders, albeit this time in the semi-finals.
To reach the grand final this year, the Storm will need to beat the odds again and this time roll the Crusaders in the penultimate game of the season.
There is no doubt the Storm are close to peak form, as evidenced by their 68-47 win over the Bankstown Bruins on Saturday afternoon in an elimination quarter final.
The Storm set up their win through an energetic and relentless attack on the offensive boards, although that dominance wasn't reflected in points on the board.
Both teams wasted possession, with the Storm leading 11-8 in the first quarter and 33-22 at half-time.
The Storm fell into the doldrums in the third quarter, letting the Bruins keep pace and trail 48-37 at the end of the third quarter -- close enough if good enough to snatch back the lead in money time.
Storm head coach Greg Radford has a tendency to always look worried during games but there would be no reason to doubt on this occasion, as his young team rose to the occasion in the fourth quarter, again dominating to race away with a 21-point win.
Blacktown Storm 68 (Petar Kuzmanovic 21 points, Krenz Carlos 12, Adam Deriviere 9, Jordan Lum Kon 8, Kharl Carlos 8, Sam Brock 8) def Bankstown Bruins 47 (Christian Petrovski 15 points, Jack Lopez 9, Fletcher Mullen 8).
