This weekend saw 5 of our Academy teams in action, including a double header for our U16 Girls Premier who had both a league and cup fixture. Check out our coaches’ thoughts below.
U18 Men 76-83 Nottingham Wildcats
“It was a very close loss for the U18 men at Wildcats. The team played good fast basketball despite the big physical difference between the teams. We managed to fight back multiple times to nearly take the win but just fell short in the end.” – Coach Pietro.
U14 Boys Premier 90-72 City of Birmingham Rockets
“The boys really wanted to win so from the start we played very well on offence and limiting the amount of shots COB got. We led from the start to the end. The team played some great offence and defence allowing us to win the game.” – Coach Ricardo.
U16 Boys Premier 65-78 City Of Birmingham Rockets
U16 Girls Premier 87-24 Manchester Mystics II
U16 Girls Premier 59-51 Sheffield Hatters – Cup Fixture
“We played in an extremely tough environment to be playing in, and with Kyrah and Eliana fouling out, everybody else needed to step up and they did. We were Committed to the zone defence in the second half to slow down the scoring and see out the game.” – Coach Lewis.
