A basketball team from Hemel Hempstead have qualified for the NBL Division One Playoff Final, after beating their opponents on April 15.


Storm went head-to-head with the Reading Rockets in the semi-finals at the StormDome, scoring 89-86 in a nail-biting match.


The team have been on a winning streak since the start of the season and is on a quest to be unbeatable until the very end.


The top scorers were Taylor Johnson with 26 points, Hakeem Sylla with 17 points, and Sam Newman with 13 points.


A spokesperson for Storm said: “Despite this not being one of Storm’s best performances, it was a thrilling game. A massive credit goes to both sets of supporters who joined together to create a lively atmosphere; one of the loudest that there has been in the StormDome this season.”
