Wolves U-16 boys took a massive step towards avoiding the JNBL Prem relegation play-offs with a 75-58 home victory against Haringey Hawks, on Saturday.
Adam Pearce's side lost by 20 when they travelled to north London in October, but they never looked back after taking a 22-16 lead in to the first break and only a strong fourth period in which Hawks outscored Wolves 75-58 prevented Oaklands taking the head-to-head decider between the teams.
Three point assassin Daniel Kostadinov (pictured) again led Wolves with 30 points, three assists and as many steals, while Milic Pavic poured in 22 points to go with his four assists. Josh Brooks had six points to go with his four rebounds and while Lanre Pratt had a rare scoreless game, he pulled down nine boards.
Taking a six point lead into the second period, Wolves blew the visitors away with some of their best basketball of the season, outscoring the visitors 29-15 to lead 51-31 going into the locker room before stretching that to 16-14 at the final break.
The U-14 boys couldn't complete a winning day for Wolves as they were beaten 89-58 at home by Baltic Stars.
Otis Lau Johnson led the home side with 22 points, three rebounds and as many steals, while Billy Harmer added 12 points along with three boards and Ricky Amrania chipped in with seven points.
Stars won the first period 19-12 and stretched the lead to 45-26 at half-time. The visitors shaded the third period 18-16 before wrapping up the win with a 26-16 final stanza.
