After a quite brilliant opening quarter when Rockets took a 33-11 lead, coupled to a 24-21 second period saw Rockets comfortably in charge of the game before the break at 57-32.
However a buoyant Warriors came out of the blocks after the interval, played much better and gave Rockets a game when Head Coach Manuel Pena Graces was probably hoping to rest many of his experienced players for tomorrow National Cup quarter final. That could not be the case and it was Rockets experienced guys and new signing Elvisi Dusha that saw them take a deserved victory with the Academy player Ali Sbai also very prominent stroking five trebles, four in the second half.
Fuller report to follow
Top scorers Craig Ponder with 20 pts., Ali Sbai and Elvisi Dusha 17 pts., each with captain Danny Carter having 13 pts., and 12 rebounds.
