Disappointing weekend for seniors

Wolves time in Division Two appears to be coming to an end as they went down to a pair of heavy defeats in London over the weekend, losing 92-68 at Richmond before being defeated 83-55 at Westminster Warriors the following day.

Wolves started well at Richmond with Lanre Pratt's jump shot putting them 6-4 ahead but that was as good as it got and despite La'Quarne Sayers; late trey they trailed 24-16 at the first break.

Five Ethan Downing point kept Wolves within six points early in the second period before Knights pulled away to lead 49-36 at half-time.

A pair of Sayers three pointers, including one where he was fouled a completed a four-point play, saw the deficit cut to 58-51 with 5:45 remaining in the third period but Richmond closed out the quarter on a 16-2 run and outscored Wolves 18-15 in the fourth quarter.

Captain Sayers hit four triples on his way to a 26-point, 11 rebound double-double, with Downing adding 11 points and Jack Davies 9.

Sunday saw Wolves never recover from a 26-11 first period, and although they shared 38 second period points and shaded the third 15-13, Warriors outscored them 25-10 in the final frame to wrap up the victory.

Davies led the visitors scoring with 11 points, while Larry Clark and Oliver Rudzinski finishing with ten apiece.

There was also disappointment for Wolves Division Two Women's side lost 61-44 at home against second placed London All Stars on Saturday evening.

A depleted Wolves team struggled to hit a shot in the first period as they trailed 12-4 with all of their points came from the foul line. In contrast their 12 second quarter points came from outside the three point arc as Rosie Porter, Caitlin Ryan, Sarah Adepoju and Grace Foster all drained from downtown, but they went into the half-time break trailing 32-16.

A much better third period saw Ryan hit eight points before Katie Nicholson coolly drained three straight free-throws to cut the deficit to 41-32 at the final break,

That was as close as Claire Abbott's young team got, and despite Porter and Ryan (twice) getting the score back into single digits with threes, the visitors closed the game out strongly to wrap up the win.

Ryan hit five triples on her way to 16 points, adding seven rebounds and as many steals. Porter had eight points and three rebounds, with Adepoju adding six points and Katie Nicholson five points and three boards.. Wolves travel to University of East London on Saturday to face East London Phoenix.
