EBL Under 18 Men Northern Premier:
Northamptonshire Titans 64
Cheshire Wire 73

NEBC Under 18 Men started their 14/15 campaign with a home opener against last season’s North Premier League Champions Cheshire Wire. In what can only be described as a nervous performance by the home side Titans struggled to get any offensive rhythm which led to a series of careless turnovers and forced shots which allowed Cheshire to get back into the game after losing the 1st quarter. Even though the Titan side trailed by only 3 points at the half they could not get back into the game and this gave the visitors the impetus to continue play with confidence as they racked up some easy scores. Once again Titans will be disappointed with their performance from the Free Throw line as they shot a paltry 6 of 26 which at this level is not good enough and something that they will be addressing in the upcoming training sessions.
Top scorers for the Titans were Terrell Salmon with 15 and Joe Savin with 8. Titans are back in action again with 2 games next weekend, they travel to Doncaster to take on the Panthers on Saturday and then play host to Leicester Warriors in the cup.
