AN under-strength Wasps side ran out 85-78 winners over Middlesbrough Lions at Eston Sports Acadamy on Sunday afternoon.

The Wasps, who were missing James Rayner and John Kelsey, narrowly fell behind in the first quarter but levelled the scoring at half-time. The Wasps began to find their stride in the second half and manage to open up a narrow lead at the end of the third to then finally take the game in the fourth.

John Brignell and Ashley Rice top scored for the Wasps with 15 points with Miles Anderson scoring 13 points.

Hull have now moved above Stockport Falcons into 4th after their 1 point loss at Tees Valley Mohawks II on Saturday.
