Valmar early leaders (basketball)

The first week’s programme in the Richie Buchanan Trophy competition, which included all the games in the first of 11 rounds which make up the first phase, as well as 2 in the second round, saw Valmar Harlem win twice and so take an early lead, with maximum 18 points.
In what was billed as the top game of the first round, last season’s Cup winners Laundry La Colada enjoyed a big win over a very depleted Bayside Argus, last season’s First Division League champions.
Flamingos, the women’s team playing in men’s competitions for the first time ever, where they will gain valuable practice for next summer’s Island Games, suffered two heavy defeats but there was some improvement in their second game’s performance.
