Boys win at the double

Wolves U-16 boys kept their hopes of a top half finish in NBL Premier East alive with a comprehensive 72-50 victory at Ipswich, on Saturday.

In probably their best team performance of the season, Adan Pearce's team led 18-15 at the first break and extended that lead to 37-27 going into the locker room at half-time.

A tight third period saw them edge further ahead at 56-44 going into the final period where they blitzed the hosts 17-6 to wrap up their eighth league victory on the campaign.

Daniel Kostadinov and Lanre Pratt each finished with 16 points, the former adding five rebounds and four steal with the latter pulling down nine boards and dishing out a couple of assists. Josh Brooks added 13 rebounds and seven assists while Alex Riley captured 11 rebounds to go with his six points.

Wolves U-14 boys survived a second half comeback from visitors Northamptonshire Titans to seal sixth spot in NBL South-East Premier with a 76-74 victory on Sunday lunchtime.

Playing on the main court, Wolves picked up from where they left off in last week's victory against MK by leading 22-14 at the first break before extending that lead to 42-24 going into the half-time break.

But they decided to make a game of it by allowing the visitors back into the game with a -25-18 third period and were left hanging on as Titans outscored them 25-16 in the third period.

The under-16s host West Herts Warriors at 11am on Saturday while the U-14s wrap up their league campaign with a home game against Kent Crusaders at 1.30pm.
