Newcastle claim first win in new arena to lead weekend takeaways

Two teams have advanced from the South pools to make the WBBL Trophy Semi-Finals, while it is all still to play for in the North.

Meanwhile, the Lions had claimed their first win on Saturday as Loren Christie posted 26 points in their 68-89 triumph on the road against Essex Rebels in South 1 alongside the Suns.

The other Semi-Final will be confirmed next week following the conclusion of the pool stages in the Trophy.
