Weekend Review 5 games in 3 days!

This weekend saw 5 out of our clubs seven teams take to the courts. Our under 13s, 15s and 19s all took on Frankley Falcons while both our mens teams were also in action.

Up first on Friday our under 15s hosted Frankley Falcons. A slow start proved to hurt the under 15s in this one. Losing the first quarter by 9 points the under 15s put in a valiant effort to battle back into the game but it was to be in vein as Frankley would go on to win 55-66. Coach Preware and the under 15s look to regroup and get back to winning ways when the host Spartans in their next league game.

Up next our under 19s took on Frankley, making the early morning Saturday trip to Bournville. The under 19s put on a great first half performance and trailed Frankley by just four points going into the halftime break. During the second half Frankley took total control of the game and dominated our under 19s, on route to a 30 point victory. Despite the loss Coach Sheridan remains optimistic that his under 19s can bounce back from this heavy defeat with his new group of players as they continue to learn and grow together.

Sunday saw our final junior game of the weekend with our under 13s also hosting Frankley Falcons. Coach Cameron’s side continued their dominant performance in the under 13s league, remaining undefeated. Coach Cameron has been impressed with the progress his new group of players has made and they are now reaping the rewards of the hard work they have put in during practice.

Both our mens team were in action on Sunday, starting with our division 2 team making the trip to Mavericks. A huge energy boost from West Brom’s bench in the second half was the difference in the game and enough to lead the team to a four point victory. The team remain undefeated en route to their goal of promotion into division 1.

The final fixture of the weekend saw our Prem team host the talented Broadway Casino Aces. Coach Rudge’s side would put together their best performance of the season so far. A disciplined, team performance saw our Prem side come out victorious. Coach Rudge: ‘Yesterdays game was the start of true belief in what we are doing as a TEAM and a club. Our defence was excellent, we were a cohesive, aggressive unit. We kept them to 50 points, that speaks louder than anything I can say and the team should feel really proud of that achievement. Offensively we had a plan and everyone bought into that. None of this would have worked without the support and empathy of the bench.’
