Revenge is sweet for Worksop

Worksop Basketball Club avenged their derby defeat earlier in the season, with a comfortable win over local rivals Retford Raiders last week.

The victory helped Worksop to reclaim the Bassetlaw Shield, contested at any competitive meeting between these two sides.

Both sides are currently struggling in a strong Sheffield Division Three, and the win sees the two sides swap places at the foot of the table.

Worksop’s second victory of the season came thanks to a great team effort with every player among the points.

The first half was even with Worksop just in front 11-10 and 23-22 after the first and second quarters.

It was the third quarter where Worksop took charge with a dominant defensive spell, restricting Retford to just three points in the period.

Worksop Scorers: Roberts 15, Fagan 13, Hemming 7, Lawes 4, Vutabwarova 4, Domanski 4, Shelton 2, Robinson 2.

Worksop will hope to climb another place when they face the side above them, Horbury Hornets, in two week’s time.
