Newham All Star Sports Academy’s under-14 boys held on for an exciting 73-72 win over Greenhouse Pioneers.

With three key players out injured, NASSA weathered an early storm from the hosts to lead 40-30 at half time.

The gap grew to 45-33 at the end of a tense third quarter, before the sides traded points throughout the final period.

Daynatia Campbell-Deeble top scored for NASSA with 11 points, as David Jesubayode (seven) and Darys Dar (six) gave support.

Reese Sangur-Castillo was instrumental in the win at the Harris Academy in St John’s Wood and coach Leo Oliveira hopes to have captain Keanu Millington, Antoine Joseph and Thomas Hugas back this weekend.

The under-18s claimed a 20-0 forfeit win over London Lions, but the under-16s lost 71-56 to Baltic Stars.

The East London All Star men’s team – a partnership between NASSA and UEL – were beaten 90-71 by London United.
