THE Moss Vale Magic, headlined by Shoalhaven trio Kyle Leslie, Brayden Morris and Josh Watts, suffered two tough youth league defeats at the weekend.
The Magic opened their double-header weekend with a Waratah League division two men's clash with St George Saints Red.
At the Hurstville Aquatic Leisure Centre on Saturday, the Magic went down 90-79 - despite 19 points from Davis and Elkins college star Leslie.
The green and whites then backed it up on Sunday at the Moss Vale Basketball Stadium.
Even though Leslie exploded for 40 points, the Magic again fell - losing 100-82.
These two losses leave the Magic in seventh with a 5-3 record.
They will next play the St George Saints White at Moss Vale Basketball Stadium from 5pm on Saturday.
