NASSA enjoy double win over Youngbloods
NEWHAM All Star Sports Academy (NASSA) tasted double victory over rivals Newham Youngbloods.
The under-15 boys led from the start of the game with great plays from Solomon Alatiste and Michael Ebose. Jonathan James put his defensive skills to good use and made the Youngbloods work for every basket.
The Youngbloods team were unable to halt the assault of NASSA and a string of solid three pointers from Myles Laurent-Smart helped his team to a 99-51 win.
NASSA under-14s attacked their contest with lightening speed and passion. Calvin Kintu, James and Ben Maraham worked hard for the team and found the basketball with ruthless regularity.
Great rebounds from Maraham, Ricardo Guddemi and Adomas Zemgulis played a key role in maintaining possession for NASSA as they restricted Youngbloods’ attacking prowess with a solid defensive display. NASSA roared to a 131-52 victory. NASSA director Natasha Hart said: “It was really good to see the players demonstrate so much passion in the game.
“They were focused and maintained a consistent level of play during both games. Well done to the coaches and players from both teams.”
