The weather affected some of the Herts Spring League games on Sunday, but those who managed to play their games this weekend took full advantage and we are starting to see the HSL standings take shape.
The Herts Hawks maintained their unbeaten record with a 24-14 win over the Milton Keynes Coyotes. This keeps them top of the HSL Double-A standings.
Despite this just being a pre-season competition, Hawks’ good form is a very positive sign ahead of the new season. They are notoriously slow starters and that has hampered their playoff hopes in the past.
Meanwhile the London Musketeers bounced back after their loss last week to pick up two good wins against Tonbridge (12-6) and Kent Mariners (13-12).
This puts them second in the HSL Single-A standings, half a game behind the Guildford Mavericks who recorded their second HSL win albeit in a game which had to be called early due to bad weather and ground conditions.
Tonbridge are a game behind the Mavericks after ending the day with a win over the Kent Mariners who are still in search of their first win.
The eagerly anticipated clash between the Herts Falcons and the reigning NBL National Champions, Essex Arrows, fell victim to the weather on Sunday.
Fans will have to wait until May 10 when the two teams will meet in an NBL doubleheader in Waltham Abbey.
