Coach Noel Lambert’s Under-18 Boys produced a dominant display on Sunday to secure a 101-49 win on the road at Cambridge, behind 33 points from Ethan Price and 22 by Blake Read.

Price also had 23 points for the Under-16s on Saturday, as Adam Robinson’s team put a run of disappointing results behind them to beat Solent Kestrels 70-49 at Copleston. Coach Robinson praised the team’s defence as making the difference.
