Jersey Sport 6 - 43 RBC Maples
When RBC Maples have their full team out they are a formidable opposition and so it proved against Jersey Sport. To be fair to Jersey Sport, their possession was close to the 50% mark but unfortunately they were unable to convert this into baskets. With better finishing skills they would be an excellent team.
Meanwhile Peter Ingram was on good form for RBC, scoring 15 points spread over every quarter and Adam Cartwright backed this up with a perfect 10.
For Jersey Sport the greatest cheer and arguably the best basket of the night, came from the ever enthusiastic Lauren Mills who was named ‘player of the match’.
HSBC Dunkers scratched to Jersey Wheelers
As HSBC Dunkers were unable to raise a team for this fixture, the Wheelers were awarded the three points.
Jersey Wheelers 42 - 8 Jersey Sport
With a mostly new line-up of effectively rookie players, Jersey Sport were always on the back ‘foot’ against the Jersey Wheelers, one of the top teams in the league.
Both Samantha Walker and James Brady were on good form, but the whole Jersey Wheeler team scored at some point in the proceedings and showed clear depth of experience as Mel Alves, Victoria Lodge and Darren Renouf added to the tally.
At the other end of the court, Jay Crocknell showed us some prowess in scoring 3 out the 4 baskets for Jersey Sport even though he had never played before! For this and his enthusiasm and fair play throughout the game, he was awarded man of the match.
