WORTHING Thunder Basketball Club sealed a EBL play-off place on Sunday (April 7) after a 62-57 win at Brixton Topcats.

Worthing will now travel to Bristol Academy Flyers in the play-off quarter-finals this weekend.

Joe Carter led Worthing with 15 points at Brixton, followed by Hank Rivers with 14 points.

Thunder coach Daniel Hildreth said: “Joe Carter had an immediate impact and had a stand-out performance. We were fortunate enough that we got two vital stops in the last seconds and we held our nerve to win the game.

“Credit to Brixton, they made it extremely difficult for us. We knew that their position in the league wasn’t a true reflection of themselves and that we would be in for a tough and scrappy contest, which it proved out to be. Overall, though, very happy with the win and we look forward to a game with Bristol.”
