BASKETBALL: DANUM Eagles Under 13s did what Doncaster Rovers could not last weekend – picked up a win in Barnsley.

And it was a convincing one at that for the Eagles as they strolled to a 65-43 at Barnsley Leaders, bouncing back superbly following two straight defeats.

The Eagles swiftly opened the scoring while Barnsley worked hard to match the pace and used their height advantage to pick up some well earned points.

But Doncaster showed their superiority to carry a 15 point advantage into the final quarter and upped the pace even further.

An impressive five minute period saw Jordan Creaser and Sheri-Jasminda Singh create turnover after turnover on the defensive ball.

Eagles scorers: Pugh 4, Bell 26, Creaser 7, Singh 18, Sanghera 3, Wordsworth 2, Thapa 4, Davenport 1.
