ARROWS star Ross Walcott returned to full health with an amazing display at the newly opened Headingly Arena in Leeds.

The unbeaten Arrows team were without Wadha Hassan making the short journey north, but showed plenty of character.

The visitors gained momentum, helped by Walcott who scored 11 points in the first quarter, and finished the first period 24-9 up.

The second quarter was much of the same as the Arrows continued their high point production.

Walcott bagged another 15 points, James Bennett and Matt Lawton scored as the Arrows went in at half time with a 50-28 lead.

Arrows and Walcott began the third as they finished the second as they continued their onslaught. With one more quarter to go, the Arrows were laying a message down to the rest of the league.

Walcott scored another double figure quarter with 11 points, before a pick and roll by Salim and Zaheer saw the three figure mark broken.

Final score: Leeds Carnegie U15s 51 Arrows U15s 102.

Top scorers: Walcott 47, Salim 14, Zaheer 14, Dennison 11.

Meanwhile, the U16s became the second Arrows side to reach three figures as they beat Bradford Dragons 114-41.

Abdifatah (24), Lycoudis (19), Martin (16), Bristow (15), Hopkinson (15) and Dennison (14) top scored for a clinical Arrows team.

Arrows Seniors suffered an agonising one point defeat to Glamorgan Gladiators, going down 80-79 in a tense game. Top scorer: Andrew Chiguri (21).
