EABL Week 5 Round Up

A number of postponements were seen in Week 5 due varying half-term commitments across the country, however, there were still nine games played across the EABL – read on to find out what happened.

North Sea Conference

Tyne Met continued to climb the table in the NSC, moving up to second place with a 70-53 victory over previously undefeated Loreto College.

Led by Alan Slasor’s four consecutive three point shots in the second quarter to give them a cushion, the win represented just the second time Tyne Met have beaten Loreto in the past five seasons. Slasor finished with 17, whilst Danny Horta Darrington had 23.

Despite the loss, Loreto remain in first place with a 3-1 record.

The other game in the North saw EABL newcomers, Myerscough, come away with an 84-78 victory over Preston College to begin their local rivalry behind 31 points from Andre Gayle.

The win was Myerscough’s first on the season, as they improved to 1-1, whilst it was Preston’s first loss, dropping to 2-1 in third place.

South East Conference

In the South East, Copleston cruised past SEEVIC 98-62, behind another big performance from Luke Mascall-Wright.

Mascall-Wright had 33 points to add to his tally of 37 last week, with Sam Newman adding 26 for Copleston, who went on a 16-0 run to end the first half to seal the game. Copleston improved to 2-1, whilst SEEVIC continue to look for their first win of the season at 0-4.

Oaklands College came away with a 71-66 upset win over defending champs Harris Academy Beckenham at home, despite 25 points from lightning quick point guard Myles Laurent-Smart, and a 19 point, 12 rebound double double from Kavell Bigby-Williams.

Harris Head Coach Steve Bucknall was clearly frustrated after the game.

“We didn’t show up to play team ball today and this is becoming a consistent trend with this group of players,” he said. “It seems that they take more pleasure in their media hype and their performances in practice than in the real games!”

Harris are now 1-1 on the season in seventh place, whilst Oaklands improved to 3-o to take the top spot from Barking Abbey.

Hackney improved to 2-1 to move up into third place, with a 78-51 win over Northfleet Tech who dropped to 0-4.
