IT was derby day for the Jets’ women’s team on Sunday.
They took on Sefton Stars at the Northgate Arena and managed to get the winning two points on the board with 30 seconds to spare. Jets’ top scorers were Corinne Stone with 20 points, Jenna Trowler with 14 and Aleanna Reddy also with 14.
Jets’ under 18s boys team breezed into the quarter- finals of the National Cup on the same day. They looked impressive against rivals Leicester, took the lead early and never relinquished it as the game ended 92-37.
Top scorers were Rabah Tahraoui with 21 points and Max Casenove with 20. The Jets now face Sheffield Sharks on January 18.
Jets squad members Neil Gillard and Jason Helsby represented England over Christmas at a tournament in Belgium.
They are now waiting to hear if they will be included for the remainder of the programme for this summer’s European Championships.
