Saints brushed aside by Mets

Disappointment for City of Sheffield Saints who dipped to a 80-73 defeat against a very physical Birmingham Mets side.

The teams went in at half time all-square (35-35) but Saints took the honours in the third quarter to take a six point lead going into the final session of their National League Division 3 clash.

However the home side responded to take a 13 point advantage, ending with a buzzer beating three-pointer.

Team and scorers: Chris Hackett 19, Kingsley Ellmer 12, Garnet Gayle 10, Pete Olusoga and Matt Brutnell 9, John Stewart 6, Javan Hayles and Chris Law 4.

Saints visit Birmingham Lions on Saturday.
