EABL Week 5 Round Up

Week 5 of the 2018/19 EABL season was a quiet one, with only three games played across the Northern and Southern Conferences, as the academies returned from October half-term. Read below for all the key information from last week’s Halloween match-ups!


Northern Conference

The only action in the North saw reigning Conference champions Myerscough College pick up a routine 106-48 win over Newcastle Eagles Academy. Lewis McGlasson hit five three-pointers and led six Myerscough players in double-figure scoring with 17 points as Myerscough improved to 3-0 on the season. Daniel Chima added 13 points and Corey Samuels had 12 whilst Bradley Kaboza, Callan Low and Demi Adenuga all chipped in 10 each for the hosts, who led from start to finish. Theo Riley and Tosan Evbuomwan paced Newcastle with 15 points apiece in the loss for the Eagles, who fell to 1-4.


Southern Conference

With just a two game slate in the Southern Conference due to postponements, SEEVIC College kicked off the afternoon by hosting Copleston High School, in a game that went the way of the visitors, 58-70. The loss sees SEEVIC still searching for their first win of the campaign, sitting bottom of the league at 0-5, despite competing with the Suffolk-based academy for periods of this contest. The hosts were led by Tendo Meseorisa who had 19 points, whilst Ethan Price finished with 21 points and 24 rebounds for the visitors, who improved to 4-1 on the season.

The only other action on Wednesday 31 October saw Itchen College travel to City of London Academy and pick up a vital 80-87 win. The contest that was a real game of two halves, as early on the CoLA squad appeared very motivated to put their two-game losing streak behind them, whilst the visiting Itchen side looked rattled. The second half saw a more energised Itchen team get back into the game and grab the win, spurred on by Jeremy Sochan’s who went for 13 in the third quarter alone. Itchen had three players with 20+ scoring efforts, as Jeremy Sochan led the charge with 25 points, while Peter Turay had 24 and Matt Hughes added 22. CoLA were led by Louis Norton-Cuffy who had 21 points, as James Hamilton added 16 and Dylan Darbin chipped in 10.
