Wasps Win Final Thriller Against Phoenix

12/03/2014 15:40

Hull Wasps held out for a crucial 85-79 win in their final game of the season over Gateshead Phoenix at Ennerdale on Saturday evening.

Leading by 11-points with under a minute to go, the Wasps had their lead cut to just 4 points within seconds with a quick 7-point blast from Phoenix. But in a nervy final few moments, the Wasps secured the win mainly from the free-throw line.

The win means that, should Kingston Panthers fail to beat Gateshead Phoenix this Sunday (16th March), then Hull Wasps will finish second in the Northern conference of National League 4 and reach the play-offs.
