EABL Recap – 8 December

This past Wednesday marked the final group of games for 2021 as most programmes now head into the mid-season break and prepare for the new year.

There was still time for five games this past Wednesday though, we’ve covered them all below and each score is clickable to access the top scorers/box score where available.

SGS College 60-87 Myerscough College

Myerscough picked up their sixth win of the season with a comfortable 87-60 victory against SGS College.

Myerscough’s trip to Bristol proved to be a productive one thanks to another strong performance from Bryan Akanmu. The forward’s 20 points were a team-high, as Sam Cheshire dropped 19 more.

Jason Soodeen capped a solid first half of the season with a game-high 26 points for the hosts, who sit at 1-6.

Newcastle Eagles University 51-93 Charnwood College Riders

Charnwood ensured that Newcastle would head in 2022 winless after a 93-51 final score in the North East.

It’s been a tough campaign to date for the Eagles, who are now 0-7 despite 15 points from Jakey Weech in this one.

Chris Yapo shone for the visitors as he scored 25 points, with Dan Hadley (16pts) and Lane Campbell (15pts) playing well in support.

The Sheffield College 85-73 Manchester Magic Academy

Sheffield beat cross-Pennine rivals Manchester 85-73, ensuring they’d retain a share of top spot until January.

The Yorkshire side have been on of the stories of the EABL season so far, and former Player of the Week Charles Okafor has been a big reason why. He had 29 points to sink Manchester, with Jude Lambert adding 20 more.

Magic couldn’t find a way past the hosts to seal a second win of the season, with Thomas Kelly’s 21 points eventually being in vain.

Copleston High School 73-86 Oaklands College

Oaklands moved into joint-second place in the South conference after a road win in Suffolk.

Copleston couldn’t keep up with the visitors, with Kane Daley’s 24 points proving to be a game-high for the Wolves.

Lewis French top scored for Copleston on 19 points, who’s record now sits at 1-3 on the year.

City of London Academy 51-68 Itchen College

Itchen joined Oaklands and JMA in second spot on 12 points thanks to a 68-51 victory against CoLA.

Max Matthews (17pts) and La Casinillo (16pts) were the only players into double digits for the visitors, but they made a big impact in what turned out to be a low scoring affair.

Di-Jani Parkinson was the standout for CoLA, he had 11 points.
