A great start to the season for Ashby A and Ashby B. Ashby C – no show by Leicester Uni means an automatic win. Unfortunately the ladies game was postponed this week.
The A team beat newly promoted (and B team rivals) Gateway B by 10 points securing their first win of the season.
The B team struggled to respond to Royales outside shots in the first half of the match. The Royales took the lead 10-25 by the end of the first quarter. Ashby B came back fighting winning the second, third and fourth quarter on points leading to a 10 point lead towards the end of the last quarter. A defensive press and change of tactics shut down the Royales offence and allowed a more athletic Ashby B to run away with it in the last quarter winning the fourth 14-4. A dominating performance by Max on offence, hitting 3s all game, congrats on top scorer!
The C Team travelled to Leics for a “no show” from the University. Good effort to all who travelled!
