Play-off heartbreak for Wolves

There was play-off disappointment for Wolves U-14 boys as they went down 79-67 at Sussex Storm 

Ibrahim Gariba's side had a 11 point lead at one stage in the game, but the hosts fought back to move a step closer to the Final Four in Manchester.

Wolves first five points in foul strewn game came at the charity stripe as Zac Butterworth and Albert Dye helped the make a good start before Sam Mcree tied the game at 13 going into the first break. 

Six Titouan Vimeux points helped Wolves open a 29-18 lead with 3:37 left in the first half but the hosts reduced that lead to 30-29 going into the half-time break and a strong third period saw Storm lead 55-46 at the end of the third period.

Vimeux hit back=o-back treys, and converted a free-throw for a four-point play, to drag Wolves back into the game as they trailed 69-64 with 2:10 on the clock, but that was as good as it got as Storm sealed the game at the foul line.

Vimeux had 16 points before fouling out down the stretch while Dye added 13. Mcree and Liam Schertel both finished with double-doubles, the former having 12 points and ten boards while the latter having ten rebounds and as many points.
