Huskies to benefit from experienced coaches
12:02pm Wednesday 16th October 2013 in Sport
THE Barry Huskies Basketball Club opened their season with two wins over previously undefeated Cardiff Met Archers in Divisions 1 and 3 of the Welsh League.
The Third Division team knocked up another win away to the Baglan
Blazers on Sunday.
Last season Barry Veteran players came first in Division 2 and have re-established themselves throughout the teams as coaching staff
to ensure their experience is shared. Players have responded well to the coaches' demands and look like doing Barry proud. The club offer their congratulations to Fletcher Mace who, at 16 years old, is getting his first experience at men's basketball and has proved to be a great addition to the team, handling the pressure brilliantly and managing to get on the scoresheet.
Results: Division 1 - Huskies 89, Cardiff Met Archers 52. Division 3 - Huskies 77, Cardiff Met Archers 67; Huskies 77, Baglan Blazers 55.
