The Wasps Reserves got their second win of the season wednesday night as they edged out the Scunthorpe Steelers. With there being no weekend game 6 first team players saw this game as a great opportunity to keep fitness levels up and to gel as a squad.
 
The Wasps started well with in the 1st quarter with good ball movement which created open shots and took a 18-13 lead at the end of the first. Scunthorpe started the second quarter well, but good passes from Paul Noble found Neil Rymer open on several occasions and the wasps extended their lead and took a 46-35 lead at the half.

The steelers came back strong in the third and tied the game, but the Wasps stayed strong and good defense by Rob Birchmore helped the Wasps regain their lead to go in after the third, 65-62. The Wasps' defence stepped up in the final quarter and Neil Rymer went on another scoring spree from which the Steelers Couldnt recover.
 
Reserves coach and captain Liam Wordsworth felt the team played really well with each other. "The team is really coming together now and the lads are enjoying the game which is making us a good team to watch. We are starting to get the little things right which will hopefully continue throughout the season. It's early days but we obviously are aiming to make the play-offs."
 
Neil Rymer top scored with 39 points and made 5 three-pointers. Jason Munro followed with 15 points. The Wasps reserves have won 2 of their first 3 league games and play Darfield next Wednesday at 8:30pm.
