EABL Recap – 20 October

It was an unusually light week in the EABL, with just three games taking place as some teams grapple with an early half term break.

There was still plenty to enjoy though, with a trio of quality games across the league.

Here’s a recap of all the action from this past week, and each score is clickable to access the top scorers/box score where available.

James Watt College-BMet 87-45 Newcastle Eagles Academy

James Watt grabbed a win in their first outing of 2021/22 as they beat Newcastle 87-45.

Jonathan Ntumba was on song for the hosts, and his 27 points plus 24 more from Kwaku Donkor proved too much for their North East opponents.

Defeat knocks the Eagles back to 0-3 on the year, with Favour Ajayi the only Newcastle player to make it to double digits in this one, he had 8.

Myerscough College 79-71 Derby College Trailblazers

19 points from Pedro Ellery were just enough to help Myerscough past Derby this week.

It was ‘Sco’s second win in a row, with Ridley Shema (13pts) and Sam Cheshire (11pts) both contributing.

Like JWC, this was Derby’s first game of the season and they’ll be disappointed not to have picked up a win despite what is still a difficult trip to a tough opponent.

One positive is that Mandre Costa led all scorers with 20 points, and Ben Hooper supported well with 19 more.

SGS College 80-81 Manchester Magic Academy

There was a classic in Bristol as visitors Manchester sealed a win over SGS by the narrowest of margins.

Thomas Kelly’s 23 points were a difference maker for Magic as he enjoyed a fine afternoon’s work. Zak Moore (18pts) and Emmanuel Oyebadejo (13pts) also played well.

Jason Soodeen was once again the focal point on offence for SGS, but his 21 points wouldn’t be enough to stave off the heart breaking loss.
