Erks win EMBL
A comfortable 97 - 79 point win over Lakers on Thursday 19th was enough for the Erks to regain the EMBL title after relinquishing it last year to Cardinals. Erks dominated all four quarters and never looked in trouble.

Mark Denchfield's game report is coming soon.

Erks face Lakers again on Thursday 26th in the EMBL play off semi final. The other semi final sees new team Gintaras against Cardinals.

Erks pip Cardinals in OT
Erks just can't get enough basketball as they played their second overtime game in 5 days on Friday night. Again Erks proved stronger in the extra period and emerged 72 - 66 winners at Cardinals.

Three more wins
With the end of the EMBL season looming, Erks have had to compress a lot of fixtures into a very short timescale in order to earn maximum points for the championship.

Last Thursday night Erks defeated Forest 116 - 43, on Friday night they beat Lakers 92 - 76 and then on Sunday defeated Stars 95 - 90 after one overtime.

There is still no let up in the schedule as they are back in action on Tuesday at Gintaras, on Thursday against Tigers and finally at Cardinals on Friday.

Erks look for success
