All Midlands Conference

It was a busy Wednesday for the AMC, all eight teams were in action, with four games scheduled.

Charnwood College and All Saints Academy faced off, both hoping to keep their perfect record intact but it was Charnwood who escaped with the ten point victory. All Saints Academy suffered a number of injuries that saw three of their players leave the game and not return.

Milton Keynes got a 15 point victory over Gateway to get their first victory on the season.

Birmingham Met dominated TCAT, 79-45, to pick up their first win of the season and move to 1-1 whist keeping TCAT without a win.

Whilst Derby College remain firmly in control at the top of the league, cruising past Moulton 78-49 to drop Moulton to the bottom of the league without a win after two games. Derby were led by Kayne King’s 14 points, 6 assists and 5 steals, whilst Bajorunas had 18 to lead Moulton.

South East Conference

In the South East it has been GB Regional Institute, Barking Abbey, that have had the hot start to the season sitting comfortable at the top of the standings.

After dominating SEEVIC in Week 1 by 52, Week 2 saw them register a twenty point rout over Northfleet. BA’s new recruit from Ireland, Oisin Kerlin, had 18 rebounds to continue his strong start in England, as he brings his average to 14 boards per game just two games in.

Canterbury High School finally tipped off their season after not having a game scheduled in Week 1, and got past SEEVIC 78-63. Canterbury had a balanced attack led by Dominic Ives’ 20 points and 9 rebounds, whilst Wood (30) and Oye-Bamebose’s (26) combined 56 points made little difference for SEEVIC.

The final fixture scheduled, between Copleston and Hackney, was postponed to be played at a later date. It means both County Upper and Hackney will start their season this coming Wednesday when they face off.

South West Conference

Ealing, Hammersmith and West London College moved to the top of the table after Week 2, getting past Aylesbury 67-59 to go to 2-0, and push Aylesbury down to the bottom of the league as they remain winless.

Harefield secured an 88-71 win over BHASVIC, who were tipping off their season. Harefield rose up the table to fourth place with the victory.

And finally, perhaps the most thrilling encounter of Week 2 in the EABL, saw a determined SGS get a two point come-from-behind win, 62-60, over Itchen. Itchen gave up a 15 point third quarter lead as SGS had a furious comeback led by England U18 Dwayne Lautier-Ogunleye, who hit the game winning basket with 20 seconds remaining.
