The weekend review

Wolves U-12 boys wrapped up a successful season with a 94-51 victory against Kings Lynn on Saturday morning.

Michael Ball's side finished second in their section of the Junior National League, with their only two losses coming against champions Milton Keynes Breakers.

they started slowly against Lynn, going into the first break leading 19-14 before blowing the visitors away with a 30-7 second period and a 26-5 third to collect their 16th victory of the season.

The U-15s also finished with a bang as they won 62-53 at North Herts Knights U-16s. La'Quarne Sayles' team had to come from behind to record their fourth  league win of the campaign as they trailed 17-14 at the first break and 31-26 at half-time. But whatever Sayles said at half-time obviously worked as a 23-12 third period gave them a fur point lead and they wrapped things up with a 13-10 final period. 

Jacob Edrupt ended an excellent season with 13 points, nine rebounds, eight assists and six steals while Seth Coetzee added three steals to his11-point. 14-rebound double-double. Nestor Sharma had 11 points while Ollie Thomas had nine, with both players dishing out two assists, and U-14 player Eriko Barkolari had a great defensive game to add six steals to his four boards and three points. 

It was a tough week for Wolves' other sides as the regular season came to an end with a series of games that had been previously postponed.

A good second quarter saw the U-16 girls only trail 32-30 against Kingston Lions on Saturday, but the visitors stepped up a gear in the second half to run out 86-50 winners. The following day saw stand-in coach Claire Abbott have only five players for the first half at London Thunder, with her side trailing 31-17 at the break. The arrival of two U-14 players at half-time took the pressure off, and Wolves outscored the hosts 14-8 in the fourth period but it was too late to prevent a 65-45 defeat.

The U-14 girls also ended with a defeat as they lost 65-47 at home against Reading Rockets on Sunday morning. 

The visitors took control midway through the opening quarter to lead 16-7 at the first break and extended that advantage to 47-14 at half-time. A 15-11 third period from the Rockets extended the lead before Wolves stepped up in the final period of their season to outscore Reading 22-13.Gauri Kohil led Wolves with 15 points, with Olivia Akers adding nine and Daisy Golan seven

A poor second quarter cost the U-16 boys as they went down 96-2 against True Vision Gold, but the team's younger players put on a good display before the visitors wrapped up the victory.

George Walker's team led for most of the first period but TVG finished strongly to lead 25-23, and they continued the run to take a 53-34 advantage into the locker room. Wolves chipped a point off that to trail 72-54 at the final break before the visitors finished strongly.

Otis Lau-Johnston again led Wolves with 23 points, nine rebounds, six steals and three assists while Max Plagemann had 19 points and eight boards. Jayen Pishardy added eight boards to his seven points, while Lucas Nuckey chipped in with eight points.

Finally, Wolves U-13 boys had an afternoon to forget as they ended a relatively successful season in the U-14 Conference with a 124-17 loss at unbeaten champions MK Breakers.
