EABL Recap – 3 November

After the half term break, there were four games making up the most recent action in the EABL as eight teams got their campaigns back underway.

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

The Canterbury Academy 64-60 City of London Academy

Canterbury picked up their first win of the season as they edged CoLA 64-60.

After previous losses to Barking and Copleston, the Kent programme were able to use a balanced offensive attack to move their record to 1-2.

Finn Rennie (11pts) and Zach Stead (10pts) were the only scorers into double digits for the hosts, as Josh Billings and Shem Onadeko both had nine points apiece.

CoLA are now the only team in the Southern conference without a win, slipping to 0-3 despite 25 points from Di-Jani Parkinson.

Manchester Magic Academy 52-88 Charnwood College Riders

Charnwood retained their unbeaten start to the season at Manchester’s expense, seeing off the Magic 88-52.

Louie Jordan top scored for the visitors with 16 points, as Lamarana Diallo (14pts) and Lane Campbell (12pts) also contributed well.

Manchester enjoyed a game-high 18 points from Zak Moore, but no other scorer made it to double digits for the hosts.

Myerscough College 76-49 Newcastle Eagles University

Myerscough continue to set the pace at the top of the Northern conference, moving to 4-0 thanks to a comfortable 76-49 victory against Newcastle.

With the hosts yet to lose and the visitors yet to win coming into this one, it always seemed unlikely that an upset would be on the cards and that proved to be the case behind 25 points for Myerscough’s Bryan Akanmu.

Jakey Weech top scored for Newcastle, he had 12 points, and you can catch up on a spotlight piece with Newcastle’s Leo Leperrier by clicking here.

SGS College 67-99 Derby College Trailblazers

Another winless team couldn’t put a notch in the W column this week as SGS slumped to a 99-67 defeat against Derby.

Jason Soodeen continued his fine form to begin the season as he scored 25 points for SGS, but it wasn’t enough to stop the hosts from falling to 0-3 on the year.

Simeon Perry led all scorers for the Trailblazers on 26 points as previous spotlight feature Matt Sweeney added 14 more.
