Myerscough College vs The Sheffield College

Sam Keita scored a game-high 22 points to lead five players in double-figures, as Myerscough beat Sheffield 116-48 on Wednesday. Bradley Kaboza added 18 points and Mate Okros and Callan Low each finished with 16 for Myerscough, which improved to 4-1 and bounced back from its defeat to Charnwood a week ago. Tim Collier also chipped in 11 off the bench.

“After the loss last week we were really determined to raise our effort level,” said Keita, who was dominant inside – scoring all of his points in the paint. “We can be a great team as long as we put our minds to it.”

Myerscough connected on eight three-pointers in the first-half, including a sequence where they hit back-to-back-to-back threes twice, to build a 49-29 advantage. The hosts then blew the doors open in the third quarter with a 15-0 run out of a timeout that extended the lead to 35.

“We preach and harp on about consistency and effort,” said Myerscough coach Neal Hopkins. “There has to be effort to be able to string together those runs – it was nice to see the guys locked in on defence and reap the rewards.”

Reyad West and Sam Taylor led Sheffield with 13 points apiece, as they drop to 1-5 after losing consecutive games.

Myerscough hosts Manchester Magic Academy next Wednesday, whilst Sheffield will wait until 28 November for their next action when they welcome SGS College to Yorkshire.
