Essex Rebels (Vi6 Colchester) 89 v 59 Mayfield School

The Colchester Vi6 Academy Rebels returned home for their midweek ABL clash against Mayfield School at the University of Essex Sports Arena. The two teams were meeting for the first time this season, as Colchester entered the game with a record of 2-1 while Mayfield sat at 2-0.

The first quarter was a battle back and forth, as both teams figured each other out. 6 minutes into the game the Rebels went on a scoring run led by their aggressive pressing defence, as J. Green led all scorers for the quarter with 7 points, taking the team into the second quarter up 21-13.

To start the second quarter, the Rebels continued their scoring run as they outscored Mayfield 16-5 in just four minutes of play. R. Taylor attributed to the scoring barrage of the quarter, scoring 15 points. Pressure defence continued to disrupt Mayfield’s flow as they finished the quarter with 9 turnovers and despite grabbing 13 offensive rebounds in the half, walked into the locker room down 29-54.

Return to play in the second half saw Mayfield come out firing, scoring 8 quick points after an unfortunate injury took one of the Rebels players out of the game. With a renewed intensity in their zone defence, Mayfield forced the Rebels into committing multiple turnovers and capitalised to bring the gap down to 17 points, with a score of 68-51 entering the fourth.

The final 10 minutes of play saw both teams fight, with Colchester working to maintain the lead and Mayfield looking to claw back. After a few minutes with both teams scrambling, the Rebels were able to clinch the game by outscoring Mayfield 21-8 in the remaining minutes, for a final score of 89-59.

Havering Sixth Form College 89 v 104 Mayfield School

Havering College were ready to battle in this week 3 match up with Mayfield but fell to a 104 – 89 defeat to the visiting team.

Havering started off hot going on a 9-0 run to get things going. But once Mayfield got settled into their offence they went on an 8-0 run of their own to take the lead with the visitors finishing the first period up by 9, lead by 10 points from E. Jolaoluwa.

The second period was fairly balanced with both teams starting to pick up the defensive pressure. Havering kept themselves in the game with a strong offensive outing from J. Lipyeat with 12 points (16 in the half). The teams headed into the half time break with Mayfield up by 11.

As in their previous home game the third period saw a big momentum shift as Havering finally started to play some stronger defence and finished with more consistency, which saw them finish the third period up by 5.

The fourth period was all about Mayfield who had the legs, and a massive 19 point haul from J. Jacobs put the game out of Havering’s reach.

Havering head coach D. Plummer said: “Mayfield played solid at both ends of the floor. We struggled to get going defensively and maintain consistency which is something we will continue to work on. As our confidence and trust within the team continues to develop we will continue to get better as the season progresses.”

J. Lipyeat lead Havering with 23 points, S. Roe and K. Mitchell both finished on 16 a piece, and N. Osatimehin 10. Mayfield were led by 27 from J. Jacobs, 22 from K. Dar, and 19 from E. Jolaoluwa.

Long Road Sixth Form 56 v 58 Mayfield School

Long Road College welcomed Mayfield College for the opening day of the ABL Eastern Division. The game did not disappoint, as the vibrant Cambridge crowd were entertained from start to finish with a tight and highly contested game, which saw the visitors come out on top 56 – 58.

The game began at a frantic pace with the Cambridge based academy starting strong. Long Road were enjoying a 12 – 3 run behind some strong defence and explosive offence from T. Chawira, who finished top scorer for Long Road with 17 points whilst also contributing 9 rebounds. However, after a timeout from Mayfield, they settled into the game and it was clear that it was going to be nip and tuck all the way.

Long Road continued their strong play in the first quarter and finished up leading 21 – 15 after one.

The second quarter was even and J. Jacobs was finishing strong around the hoop, as Mayfield began to put more pressure on Long Road. However, Long Road continued to keep Mayfield at bay with some good shooting from D. Batcheler and a three-pointer from V. Cailao on the buzzer. This gave the Cambridge academy a slender lead at the half. (34 – 29)

After early exchanges in the third quarter, Mayfield switched their defensive to a 2-3 zone and caused Long Road to turn the ball over - leading to some easy fast-break opportunities. They then closed the gap to two points. However a late 8-2 run by Long Road meant they were still in front going into the fourth quarter. (46 – 42)

A strong start to the fourth quarter saw Mayfield take the lead for the first time in the game! Long Road were struggling, physically, but a quick 5 – 0 run behind a step back three from Batcheler saw them retake the lead going into the final stages of the game.

The game was decided at the free-throw line down the stretch with Mayfield going 5/6 to finish the game and Long Road 1/4 and with time running out and down by two, Long Road were unable to get a final shot off with the visitors taking the game by just a single basket!

Long Road Head Coach, Pete Charlwood said:

“We looked really strong in the 1st quarter and we played a pretty solid game but overall we made too many errors, particularly on the offensive end with too many crucial turnovers. We had opportunities today but weren’t able to execute the final pass or finish down the stretch, particularly against their zone defence.”

Top performers in the game were J. Jacobs for Mayfield with 18 points and 9 rebounds and T. Chariwa for Long Road with 17 points and 9 rebounds. E. Jolaoluwa also added 16 points for Mayfield whilst other noticeable performances for Long Road were D. Batcheler with 12 points and K. Holmes was a monster on the boards, bringing down 18 rebounds.

Next week Long Road travel to New City College for their second league game, whilst Mayfield School host County Upper.

Updates for Schools & Coronavirus

Updated guidance for education settings on Coronavirus (COVID-19) Today, the Department for Education and Public Health England have issued updated guidance for education settings on COVID-19. This guidance will assist staff in addressing COVID-19 in educational settings. This includes childcare, schools, further and higher educational institutions. What you need to know: staff, young people and children should stay at home if they are unwell with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature to avoid spreading infection to others. Otherwise they should attend education or work as normal.   if staff, young people or children become unwell on site with a new, continuous cough or a high temperature they should be sent home.   clean and disinfect regularly touched objects and surfaces more often than usual using your standard cleaning products.   supervise young children to ensure they wash their hands for 20 seconds more often than usual with soap and water or hand sanitiser and catch coughs and sneezes in tissues. The updated guidance can be found here: ( Current advice remains in place: no education or children’s social care setting should close in response to a suspected or confirmed COVID-19 case unless advised to do so by Public Health England. The Chief Medical Officer has advised that the impact of closing schools on both children’s education and on the workforce would be substantial, but the benefit to public health may not be. Decisions on future advice to education or children’s social care settings will be taken based on the latest and best scientific evidence, which at this stage suggests children are a lower risk group. Recording school pupil absences Where a pupil is in self-isolation, in accordance with latest information and advice from Department of Health and Social Care and Public Health England, the pupil should be recorded as unable to attend due to exceptional circumstances in the attendance register. Code Y (Unable to attend due to exceptional circumstances) should be used in this instance. If a pupil does not attend school, despite the school operating as usual and the pupil is not self-isolating, they should be marked as absent. It is for headteachers to determine whether or not the absence is authorised depending on the individual circumstances. Where a pupil cannot attend school due to illness, as normally would happen, the pupil should be recorded as absent in the attendance register and the school will authorise the absence. Code I (Illness) should be used in this instance. Handwashing advice The most important thing individuals can do to protect themselves is to wash their hands more often, for at least 20 seconds, with soap and water. Public Health England recommends that in addition to handwashing before eating, and after coughing and sneezing, everyone should also wash hands after using toilets and travelling on public transport. Watch this short NHS film for guidance: ( Department for Education coronavirus helpline The Department for Education coronavirus helpline is available to answer questions about COVID-19 relating to education and children’s social care. Staff, parents and young people can contact this helpline as follows: Phone: 0800 046 8687 Opening hours: 8am to 6pm (Monday to Friday), 10am to 4pm (Saturday to Sunday) Please note, we are currently experiencing high volumes of calls.
