Perfect Weekend Away for the Hoods

The McDonald’s Nottingham Hoods made it a perfect 4 wins from 4 away from home throughout the club age groups, led by a record breaking performance by Delaney Powell.

Delaney Powell led the way, breaking the single game scoring record with a staggering 40 points, as well as adding 10 rebounds and 3 steals, but he was able assisted by Eric Milambo with 14 points, 13 rebounds and 4 steals and Captain Kieran Wright with 11 points.

Elsewhere, Hoods II had a confidence boosting 21 point win at Kings Lynn Fury, winning 68-89 and led once again by Spencer hitting 31 points, with Stewart adding 15 and Enkuzens adding 11.

The impressive u16 boys continued their perfect start to the season, winning 39-63 at Leicester Riders to extend their lead at the top of the table, before the u18 made it a full house of away victories by putting away Northamptonshire Titans 74-81 and remain 2nd in the league.
