CWA Fury roared into the National League Division Four play-off semi-finals by stunning much-fancied Brunel University Ducks at Lynnsport.

The King's Lynn hosts, ranked 13th in the 16-team end-of-season shoot-out for promotion, triumphed 91-82 against the South East set-up's champions, seeded fifth. And they did it in front of the club's biggest crowd of the campaign as around 250 supporters helped roar James Bamfield's men to victory.

Fury hit the front from the off and led 26-10, 44-32 and 67-53 at the breaks. Despite a late Ducks rally, CWA held firm to set up a last-four trip to fellow East Midlands outfit Barking and Dagenham Thunder on Saturday, April 11.

They scored an impressive 87-82 over-time success at previously unbeaten big-hitters Team Newcastle University and have beaten Fury home and away. But CWA have been underdogs twice already in the play-offs so will travel full of confidence.
