aarron on the ball versus leicester dynamite

The U18s Warriors coached by Coach Bilal came out on top against local rivals Leicester Dynamite coached by Dave Harris on Saturday 8th October at Beauchamp College.

The game started of close with the 1st quarter ending 7-7 with neither team finding the hoop. In the 2nd quarter the Warriors took control and finished the half 27-23. With the second half Coach Bilal was able to use his deep bench with many of his younger players getting time on the court. Although Dynamite never gave up it was a comfortable win for the Warriors who eventually won 52-48.

Coach Bilal said “We struggled in the first half in finding the hoop but we kept pressing and caused a number of turnovers and in the send half were more relaxed and played the Warriors way. The team played well!”
