Myerscough College vs Moulton College

Myerscough had 7 players in double digit scoring as they made light work of the number 8 seed Moulton College on Wednesday afternoon to progress to the next round of the play-offs with a 107 – 44 victory.

It took the visitors 8 minutes to register their first score as Myerscough raced out to lead by 25 during the first period. A shell shocked Moulton struggled to adjust to the high tempo of the home team and could only manage to put up 11 points at the half.

Trailing 55 – 11 going into the third period the game was all but over but Moulton battled and managed to establish some rhythm which had been so crucially missing during the first two periods.

With all 12 Myerscough players registering healthy minutes the score-line continued to widen and as the final buzzer rang the home side recorded a 107 – 44 victory to advance to the Elite 8.

“The guys were tenacious in the first half, we lost our intensity as the game progressed but we had done the damage early – Moulton are a very honest team and play with great integrity, their attitude in a tough circumstance today was outstanding,” commented Myerscough Head Coach Neal Hopkins after the game.

7 players registered 10 or more points for Myerscough in a balanced offensive effort, Linas Bajorunas had 18 points 7 boards for the visitors with George Calvey adding 10 points 12 boards.
