London United lost by 1 point at home to Worthing Thunder in the Semi Finals of the National Trophy on Sunday.

The game was a see saw affair even though London had a 10 point lead in the 3rd quarter which they then threw away as Thunder came back to lead at 58-59 at the end of the period.

Worthing stole the game as London took the lead with 30 seconds to go at 74-73, however it was Gaylon Moore who went to the foul line and made two free throws to give the South Coast team a 1 point lead with 12 seconds remaining. With Worthing on team fouls and possession back with London it should have been enough to give London the last shot but they failed to execute their play and handed the win to Worthing.

The game finished 74-75 to Thunder who will progress on to the finals to meet Sheffield.

Top scorers for London were Vear and Callender 15, Reid 11 and Mumuni 10 whilst Knox had the game high for Worthing with 21 as Gayle and Moore supported with 17 each.
