There was an emphatic win for the Under-18 Men on Saturday as they took down a depleted Haringey Hawks team, 110-36, at Copleston, writes Rob Schatten.

Noel Lambert’s charges led 32-9 after the first quarter. All players scored for the hosts, with Blake Read (34), Ben Winter (32) and Matt Spurling (13) leading the way.

The Under-16 Girls notched another victory, this time coming home from Brighton Cougars with a 59-49 victory behind 24 points from Susannah Rafiu and 12 from Cameron Taylor-Willis.

Brighton were down 11 at the half, but upped their game after the break, and Hayley Rigby’s side needed all their composure to close out the victory.

Elsewhere, there was defeat for the Under-16 Boys on their own travels to the south coast, losing 77-68 at Sussex Storm in a hard-fought game which the hosts closed out at the death. Ethan Price had 41 points for Adam Robinson’s side.
