28/06/2008 21:59

The Hull Wasps have won The Derby Cup by beating the Doncaster Falcons 74-54 at The Gemtec Arena on Saturday night.

The game began with two very equally matched sides both coming out to knock down some three pointers to take the score in at the first break, 20-21 to the Falcons.

The Wasps came back on the court for the 2nd quarter fired up and raring to go. Some direct drives to the basket gave Hull a 16-7 run to take the lead, and go in at half time, 36-28.

Hull came back out full of purpose once again to extend the lead even further. Doncaster kept in touch as much as possible with their talented squad, but the Wasps passion and drive proved too much to handle as they ended the 3rd quarter almost 20 points ahead, 61-42.

The 4th quarter saw both teams score almost equal points, with the Wasps just edging it with 13 points to 12, ending the game 74-54 to win The Derby Cup.
