Wolves give Kings a fright

The Wokingham Paper - - SPORT -

PRO­MO­TION-CHAS­ING Worces­ter Wolves con­tin­ued their charge with a big win over Thames Val­ley Kings in Di­vi­sion Three.

The game was as good as won by the end of the first quar­ter with the hosts lead­ing 20-0.

Denise Dram­mis and Peter Rap­ley fi­nally got Kings on the score­board, but they trailed 34-8 at half-time.

Cap­tain Nick Gorst and Mo Daller found the net as the game wore on as Kings ral­lied, only for Wolves to ease to a 64-20 win.

“A tough re­sult to take but we knew it wasn’t go­ing to be an easy game,” said Wayne Bur­ton.

“A very tough Wolves team were hard to break down, very quick on the break and hit­ting some very im­pres­sive out­side shots.

“As a team, we need to learn from all this, try and step up an­other level and work bet­ter with the for­wards and guards.

“Al­to­gether a bet­ter per­for­mance than the first game so if we can keep im­prov­ing game by game and learn the ba­sics in train­ing we can only get bet­ter.”
