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.
