Difficult Weekend For Rockets Junior Teams

It was a difficult weekend for our youth teams, as we suffered a difficult set of results that we will hope to bounce back from next weekend.

Our Under-12 Mixed team tipped-off the weekend, losing 63-36 at Nechells to Derby Trailblazers, although we remain ahead to them by a single point at the top of the table.

The Under-14s Boys Conference side also fell to a defeat, losing away 79-63 to Bromsgrove Bears away from home on Saturday.

It was also an unfortunate weekend for both our Under-16 Boys team, with the Conference team losing 79-63 to Stourport Spartans while our Premier team were defeated 73-37 away to Manchester Magic.

It was defeat in Manchester as well for our Under-18 Girls, as they were defeated 65-40 in a win for Manchester Magic.

Our Under-18 Boys Premier Team were also unlucky, winning three quarters but narrowly losing 94-86 as they put in a good display against West Bromwich Albion that ultimately saw our hosts coming away with the points.

Our junior teams will hope to be luckier next weekend, when our Under-14 Conference side play host to Leicester Dynamite at 12:20 at Nechells Wellbeing Centre while our Under-14 Premier team are in action away at Leicester Riders.

Nechells Wellbeing Centre will also play host to a double header next Saturday, as our Women take on Derby Trailblazers at 5pm, followed by our Men hosting Bristol Hurricanes as they look to record back-to-back home wins. Get your tickets here for what promises to be a great evening!
