20/12/2009 00:46

HULL WASPS completed 2009 in style with a convincing 100-61 victory over Reddish Rebels at the Gemtec Arena.

The result leaves the Wasps just 2 points behind the top four sides, who all sit on 14 points, and 4 points ahead of the Wasps’ next opponents, Team Durham Wildcats.

Hull took some time to set in their stride but after the opening few minutes, they took the lead and never looked back.

A small rally at the beginning of the second half from the visitors reduced Hull’s significant lead but it wasn’t enough as a dominant display in the final quarter allowed the Wasps to reach 100 for the first time this season.

Matt Fawcett top scored for the Wasps with 18 points, Michal Kucmierczyk scored 17, with game MVP James Rayner (and stand-in captain) scoring 13.
