The Rockets Senior team made it 4 straight league wins this evening with a 75-67 win over Nottingham Trent University Hoods to progress to a 4&1 record in Division 4 Midlands.
After a mixed first quarter which saw the visitors connecting from range on several occasions the Rockets finally got their press working effectively as 2 huge Bradshaw dunks gave the team the momentum going in to half time with a 40-34 advantage.
Rockets extended the lead to 9 during the 3rd quarter with some excellent work from Ferris Murray giving Rockets several offensive rebounds.
Despite a minor wobble in the final stanza, 3s from Kontopygros and the experienced Sam Walker saw Rockets over the line.
The result was made more impressive due to Rockets missing the injured Ronald Oberia, Arivelle Trout and Matt Catlow.
Quarter Scores: 19-24/ 21-10/ 18-13/ 17-20
Scorers: Bradshaw 18/ Tomlinson 11/ Kontopygros 11/ Walker 9
Next up for the Rockets is a tough trip to the experienced Northants Thunder next Saturday evening (4th November) @ 6pm.
