BHASVIC vs John Madejski Academy

John Madejski Academy registered an 87-68 victory over BHASVIC on the road on Wednesday.

JMA were led by their forward Alex Drincic who had 27 points, as they pulled away in the second half for the victory. Matt Armstrong had 22 points and Adrian Nosa Castillo contributed 17 off the bench for the visitors.

In a game where BHASVIC were looking to turn around their fortune with last week’s loss to Barking Abbey, they took on a JMA side who suffered their first defeat last week at the hands of Oaklands College.

BHASVIC started off the game strong, leading 30-21 at the end of the first quarter and carried the momentum through to the second quarter leading at half time, 50-45.

However, the second half was a different story. BHASVIC didn’t come out with the intensity, energy and discipline they did at the start of the game, as JMA took advantage of this momentum shift outscoring BHASVIC 18-6 in the third quarter.

Much was the same in the last quarter as BHASVIC couldn’t get into their rhythm, and JMA kept their feet on the pedal and never looked back as they pulled away with an 87-68 win.

BHASVIC were led by their captain Naz Mcloughlin who had 19 points in the game and Enoch Quarcoo with 17 points while Jake Watson chipped in 13 points.

After the game, BHASVIC coach James Quinto said:

“I emphasised to the guys we needed a strong start like we did in the first game and we did just that. However, we weren’t able to keep that throughout the game, especially in the second half.

“Another thing that hurt us is our discipline on both ends. We’ve been expressing discipline and patience in practice and even before the game, however we weren’t able to stay consistent at the tasks we set out to do which ultimately changed the momentum of the game from there.

“Lots of positives to take from this and we are seeing a massive improvement from our team every week so I’m confident that we will come out even stronger next game.”

BHASVIC visit COLA next week and JMA face Canterbury at home.
