Hornets U16 & U18 were both in action away to local rivals MK Trojans this weekend at Bletchley College, whilst Hornets U14's were hosting Woking Blackhawks at Sir Henry Floyd.
The U16's were first to tip off v the Trojans U16's who had made a perfect start to the season with a 2-0 record. Hornets opened up the scoring behind a made free throw but Trojans came out on top in the 1st quarter leading 12-9. In the 2nd quarter the travelling Hornets began to settle and were playing with much more confidence taking a 35-31 lead at half time. Going into the 3rd Hornets carried over the 2nd half momentum and stretched out a 17pt lead 54-37. However MK were not finished and after some Hornets complacency and unforced errors the Trojans were able to claw their way back into the game to tie it up 63-63 at the end of regular time. Disappointed but unphased by the Trojans elated fans the Hornets boys rallied together in over time and were able to see out the game for the deserved win 76-72 victory to Hornets and 3 wins in a row... 🐝
Hornets U18's were also in action in MK soon after the U16's OT victory. Some excellent defence from Hornets saw the Trojans only managing to score 39 points in the game as Hornets came away with 55 points of their own and maintained their 100% perfect start to the season 3-0 🐝
Following their impressive opening game victory last week Hornets U14's faced Woking Blackhawks at home. Hornets started off strongly and were very competitive winning the 1st quarter 15-14. However a lapse in concentration and intensity either side of the half resulted in Hornets giving up some easy baskets that allowed the Blackhawks to take a 14pt lead going into the 4th. Hornets fought back in the final quarter and finished strongly but it was too little too late as they took their first loss of the season 68-58 🐝
