Newcastle Eagles Face Plymouth Raiders in BBL Trophy Showdown March 23, 2012 15:43

Tonight should be an exciting night in the BBL as the Newcastle Eagles are host to the Plymouth Raiders for the second leg of what has already started out as an electric BBL Trophy Showdown.


The two teams met earlier in the season as they fought it out for the BBL Cup, with the Eagles taking a decisive win over the Raiders. 

Whenever the Eagles and Raiders have met in regular season games, they have always put on a great show for the fans, with blows being struck on both sides. 

The first round of the BBL Trophy was played in Plymouth last Sunday, with the Eagles seeing defeat at the hands of the Raiders. The scoreline in that game now means that the Eagles have to win their home leg of the match by at least 10 points in order to take the title. Likewise, Plymouth just have to keep the Eagles at bay for 40 minutes in order to clinch victory. 

The final battle takes place tonight in Newcastle, at Sports Central, and the victor will be the 2011-2012 BBL Trophy winner!
