Worcester Wolves claimed 2/2 wins this weekend, recovering from last week’s loss.
Victorious 35-24 over Gloucester Blazers on Saturday and a 50-45 victory against
Hampshire Harriers on Sunday.
This weekend would also see alumni player Rob Whale debut as the team’s new
In the game versus Gloucester, Wolves secured an early ten-point lead in the first
quarter and they maintained that lead for the rest of the game as they ended up winning
by 11 points, 35-24.
Despite this being not as much of a convincing win as coaches Smith and Whale
would’ve liked he was still pleased with his side’s victory.
Top scorer of Saturday’s game was Frankie Jones with ten points.
In the game versus Hampshire, Wolves got off to their best start of the season scoring
22 points in the first quarter with all of the starting five displaying great team basketball.
In the second quarter, Wolves captain Frankie Jones suffered a knock to the teeth and
had to be subbed off for a while.
Despite the shock of this occurring, the team were still able to maintain an offensive
presence and display decent defence, going into halftime with a 20-point lead.
Things began to slip for the home side in the third quarter as they started to play as five
individuals rather than a team.
This caused a slight downfall for Wolves as Hampshire started to fire up.
Towards the end of the final quarter, composed free throws from Jones secured Wolves
the five-point victory 50-45, capping off a successful weekend for the club.
Top scorer for Sunday’s game was again Frankie Jones with 14 points. After the game
we presume he went to the dentist to get his teeth fixed.
