A depleted Hull Wasps side made it 4 straight wins with another convincing victory, this time at the hands of Middlesbrough Lions.

Wasps came into the game without starting point guard John Kelsey and forwards Rob Birchmore and Damien Keegan but put together another strong performance in front of their home crowd.

Hull led all the way after outscoring the visitors 28-16 in the first quarter. It puts them second in National League Division Four North at this early stage of the campaign.

The game also saw the return of former Wasps player-coach, James Coulson, who came off the bench to put in a solid performance.

Player-coach John Brignell scored 21 points, 10 in the first quarter, to stay among the league's leading scorers. Captain Jamie Goodwin added 16 and guard Matt Fawcett hit 14 as all 11 Wasps players got onto the scoresheet.
