Evans Above 63 Corvus 79

Royston basketball side Corvus continued their great start to the season with another impressive victory over strong side Evans Above at Wodson Park, Ware last Friday.

With a strong playing squad, the decision was made to play the whole game with a man-to-man defence to counter the strong outside shooting of Evans.

This paid dividends with Corvus taking a 15-point lead into half time. Scott Ingrey was able to shake off last week's knee injury and score with his usual drives under the basket and three-pointers.
