Having won 3 out of 4 BBL championship games to start the season the Lions were in a good position heading into their cup game at home against Leeds Force.
The Force aren’t looking as strong as they would like this season and have already faced some tough losses.
The game started well for the Lions and honestly it never looked as though the Force had a chance. By the end of the first period the Lions were ahead 31-5. The Leeds team kept playing and managed to put some good runs in but for the most part they looked tired and frustrated.
The pace of the game occasionally seemed to cause problems for the Lions as well. Some fancy passing that didn’t reach the intended target suggested that trying to show off may be less useful that sticking to the basics and doing them well.
The Copper Box crowd was treated to a real show from the home team and we got to see minutes from Roberts and James.
In the end it was a convincing victory for the Lions (103-54) who will face Leicester in the next round.
