Back from the Christmas break the league leading side faced Herts Warriors a little less fit than they had been before the holidays. This initial rust was shown in the first quarter where Hornets led by only 1 point.
However once the team seemed to warm up and get used to playing again they started to show their dominance once more. This lead to a very convincing second and third quarter offensively. With a strong influence on the boards giving the side great opportunities for second chance points Hornets created a significant lead.
The teams strong defence also shone through despite the possible lack of fitness. The team’s chemistry was too much for Herts Warriors to deal with. Great ball movement to give the big men easy scores was seen throughout the game.
Sam Nicholson showed great aggression starting in the point guard spot scoring 14 points. Ashton ‘splash’ Linney showed the holidays hadn’t changed his shooting form as he continued to score 3’s along with his 12 rebounds earning him a double-double. Andy also joined Ashton in a double-double along with 26 points making him top scorer.
