NASSA under-12s recorded a 61-55 win over their local rivals on Sunday

An 11-point haul from Keanu Millington helped NASSA under-12s to a 61-55 success over their Barking & Dagenham Thunder rivals.

It was a tight game between the two local rivals which took place at the UEL SportsDock on Sunday.

The end of the first quarter saw the teams level at 14-14, before NASSA stepped up a gear to take a well-earned lead into half time.

The hosts continued to impress in the third quarter, before seeing out the game in the final period to triumph.

As well as Millington, Reese Sangur-Castillo nabbed nine points, while Ashley Ferreira scored seven.

‘It was a great day for NASSA and the success is a testament to the hard work from our coaches and players,” said under-12s head coach Leandro Kamosso.

“All of the players have worked really hard and we are very proud of the result. It shows that we are still at the top of our game and that we have a lot more to offer.”
