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.
