Hatters U18 went to Leeds on Saturday the 17th of October. Hatters did what was asked of them by keeping Leeds to only 13 points in the first quarter. Unfortunately they were unable to convert straight forward moves under the basket and finished the first quarter 13-11 down. The second quarter ended in a similar manner with Hatters 28-25 down, and Courtney Bennett on four fouls.
Hatters won the 3rd quarter 8-11 and this allowed them to enter the fourth and final quarter tied at 36 – 36. Hatters learnt patience in the final quarter, creating great space and successfully shooting when open. They stepped up their defence which allowed them to take the lead and finish as the winners with a score of 47-55 to U18’s Hatters.
