JOEL JOSEPH was the Feltham Warriors U16s hero on Sunday.
He bagged the winning basket with just seconds remaining as Feltham beat Sevenoaks Suns by a single point.
Sevenoaks had led by four points with under a minute remaining when Ben Ohene ran the length of the court to score and reduce the gap to two points.
Coach Rudy Harriot then called a time-out, setting up a play for Joseph to notch the three-pointer, playing out Harriot's plan to perfection.
It was a risky strategy as a two-point basket would have sent the game into overtime,but Joseph nailed his long-distance effort almost on the final whistle.
Special mention must also go to Ohene,George Fletcher,Joe Pompilis and James Richardson, who were outstanding all game.
It was also the perfect way to bounce back from the previous day's shock defeat at Kent Crusaders, a team Feltham had beaten by 26 points the week before.
Fletcher,Pompilis, Richardson, Alex Cadore and Shakir Rahim all put in good displays, but it was not enough.
The future also looks bright for the U16s development squad, who lost by a single point to Hackney Spartans.
Established U15 stars Rahim and Rebaz Baban led the charges from start to finish and showed they are more than capable of stepping up.
Meanwhile,with a full squad to choose from for the first time this season, the U14s cruised to a 41-8 win over Guildford Heat.
James Woodburn-Hall continued his rich scoring vein, with Aqib Sheikh and Yussef Abdullahi giving support from the back court.
