The Challenge Cup takes centre stage this week and through to the semi-finals are pool winners JM Grizzlies, Westwood Rhinos and Rugby Rage.
Joining this trio will be Nuneaton Predators 2 who won their game against Team Rebels by default after the home side failed to arrive and the game was awarded 20-0.
In Division One Aylesford Hawks hammered Coventry College by forty, with Ricky Fennell hitting the heights and Ernesford Eagles had a blistering final two minutes to beat Leamington Spartans in the game played last Friday.
Tile Hill Trojans 3 beat Nuneaton Predators on Monday then followed this up with a lack-lustre performance against Rugby Rage on Thursday. The game was classed as a double header with the result counting as the cup tie as well as the league fixture.
DAVID’S KEEPING US IN THE PICTURE…..
Thanks this week go to David Valente the father of Grizzlies’ Daniel for he has sent in several action photographs of Grizzlies games. We sent the picture in the title to the Coventry Telegraph this week and they gave it prime position with the weekly basketball report.
Grizzlies were at Tamworth where Tigers took the points with ease but a sterling performance from their visitors earned them accolades from everyone present.
Leading the way for Tigers was Lukasz Bolda who landed 28 points including 17 in the third quarter, but Dan Borg set the scene with four three-pointers in the opening quarter. Grizzlies scoring was headed by Harry Adaway who made 13.
TIGERS HOST HANDICAP CUP FINAL…..
The final of the Bob Castledine Handicap Cup is now fixed for Wednesday 17th April at Rawlett Centre Tamworth and it will feature Tamworth Tigers v Tile Hill Trojans 1 with an 8.15pm tip-off. Ironically the pair meet at the same venue in Division One of the Warwickshire Basketball League next Wednesday – just two weeks prior to the final so this match will be a pointer as to who might take home the coveted trophy currently held by Arden Griffins.
