Newham All Star Sports Academy (NASSA) junior teams combined for more wins at the weekend.

The under-18s proved too strong for Barking RDF Lions, running out 79-50 winners.

And the under-14s dug deep despite injuries to two players to come back from 12 points down and win 63-58 at Chelmsford Lions.

Keanu Millington and David Jesubayode produced some good plays, along with Darys Dar and Thomas Hugaas to help seal the win.

The under-15s faced Lewisham Thunder in their first game of the season on Saturday but found it tough to break through a good zone defence and suffered a 59-49 defeat.
