Final unbeaten records gone in Suffolk Senior Basketball League

The final two unbeaten records in the Suffolk Senior League ended last week when Lit United and Deben Jutes suffered defeats, although they still head their respective divisions.

In Division One, Lit visited Sledgehammers and led in the early stages before the home side put together a 13-6 run to lead by three going into the second quarter.

With Sledgehammers only scoring once in the next three minutes, the Lithuanians moved ahead and were five up by half time. The third quarter belonged to Sledgehammers as Joe Matthews and Jules Keeling combined for 20 to help the home side into a 17-point lead and although the visitors had the better of the final quarter, there was too much ground to make up and they went down 94-91.

Elsewhere, Lasers went down at home to Eagle, 73-69, in another tight game, while Bulldogs recorded their first win since mid-October when they travelled to Cobras.

In Division Two another game was decided by less than 10 points as Jutes surrendered their 100 per cent record, 70-65 at Kings.
