HULL Wasps returned from their Christmas and New Year break on Saturday evening but lost out to a very sharp Durham Wildcats side, 99-94. The Wasps were left behind from the first quarter and found it difficult to come back into the game but a spirited fourth quarter display from the home side almost brought them back from 14 points down.
Wasps will now look to recover against Liverpool on Sunday (3pm, Bonus Arena) who picked up only their second win of the season against Bury Blue Devils on Saturday afternoon.
John Brignell top scored with 36 points, Jamie Goodwin got 14 with Rob Birchmore scoring 12. Matt Fawcett came on in the final quarter to impress with a strong performance, putting in 8 points for the Wasps.
