All four Dunmow Crests teams were action this week, despite the ongoing cold weather.
Crests Academy started the week with an emphatic win over White Horse Knights 56-18.
Crests played an excellent passing game, creating plenty of space to work the ball down the court.
Defensively Academy made it hard for Knights to create many chances, and with the Crests shooters on top form, they marched away with the victory.
Their player of the match went to Hollie Mackay.
Crests Whites faced Braintree Town Saturn.
With Crests having won earlier in the season, and both teams very evenly matched, the re-match was always going to be close.
