Wasps Feel the Heat

27/02/2011 20:10

HULL Wasps couldn't contain a table-topping Huddersfield side as they went down 76-55 on Sunday afternoon.

Wasps travelled to West Yorkshire hoping to continue their form of recent weeks but Huddersfield, who have lost just 3 games all season, dominated the game and out-scored the Wasps in each of the first 3 quarters.

The first quarter was a close opening period at Rishworth School but the Wasps went in at the break 21-15 behind.

Huddersfield came out strong in the second and took control of the game scoring 24 and restricting the visiting Wasps to just 12. Half time 45-27 to the Heat.

A small run mid-way through the third from the Wasps gave them a glimmer of hope but Huddersfield stepped up once again to open up a 24 point lead and end the third quarter at 65-41.

Hull managed to regain some momentum in the final but it was too little too late and the Heat took the game at 76-55.

Jamie Goodwin top-scored for the Wasps with 13 points, John Brignell scored 12 and Miles Anderson scored 9.

Hull have a chance to hit back against the Heat next Sunday when they come to the Bonus Arena in the second of another double-game weekend for the Wasps. Before that, Cheshire Jets are next for the Wasps on Saturday 5th March, 7:30pm at the Bonus Arena.
