Newham All Star Sports Academy (NASSA) under-16s had another successful weekend as they beat local rivals Newham Youngbloods 95-62.

The game began with both teams fairly evenly matched, however, it didn’t take long for the NASSA team to establish themselves as the stronger team as they opened up a five point lead over the Youngbloods.

NASSA took a 49-43 lead into the half-time break before they continued to dominate the Youngbloods throughout the third and fourth quarter.

Good foot work and strong drives to the basket from NASSA left the Younbloods floored and by the end of the game NASSA had bagged a 95-69 win.

NASSA Head Coach Ryan Ocampo said: “This was another pleasing win for NASSA Under 16 team. Huge credit to the boys. “I know that we still have a lot of work to do this season but I am confident that NASSA are always up to the challenge”.
