Ipswich senior team’s win seemed relatively hard-fought when contrasted with the previous game at Copleston on Saturday, in which Dave Girling’s under-18 boys beat Shoeburyness Scorpions by 86 points.

Ben Mobee (33 points) and Jonny Hall (32 points) led the charge for Ipswich.

The final score was 112-28, with everyone getting on the scoresheet.

The final result was testament to the constant pace and power of the Ipswich players at both ends of the court which, despite their constant hard work, Scorpions found hard to cope with.

Hall and Mobee thrilled the home fans with four dunks in the second half.
