It was a balanced attack from the Halifax Rainmen on Thursday night as eight players from Halifax scored in double figures in the 122-107 win over the Summerside Storm. The Storm who started the season with a 5-3 record have been reeling as of late, losing their fifth straight game on Thursday. The Storm who struggled from the free throw line against the Halifax Rainmen this past Saturday, struggled again on Thursday going 17 for 36 from the free throw line. Mike Williams had a huge game for the Storm, scoring 27 points and pulling down 15 boards.
Halifax blew the game wide open in the third quarter, scoring 39 points in the third. This is the Rainmen's second road win of the season, and have now won four in a row. Halifax returns home to play the Oshawa Power on Sunday afternoon.
Joey Haywood, Halifax - 17 pts (7-8), 3 ast
