Summer Showcase – week 3 recap

Another week of the Summer Showcase is complete as three more games made up the third round of WEABL action.

Manchester Mystics Academy, City of London Academy and Barking Abbey all enjoyed victories as the competition approaches the half-way stage.

The week three results and top scorers can be found via the score ticker of the main WEABL homepage.

North Pool

Manchester Mystics Academy 60-50 The Sheffield College

Mystics grabbed their first victory of the Summer Showcase in Manchester after winning the battle of Lancashire v Yorkshire on Sunday.

Abbey Whitehouse led the scoring charts with 21 points but it wasn’t enough to beat the hosts, guided by 19 points from Charli Wroe.

The loss leaves Sheffield without a win so far in the competition going into week four.

South Pool

City of London Academy 69-54 Itchen College

In the first of two games in the South, CoLA started their campaign with a bang and halted Itchen’s strong start to the Summer Showcase.

The visitors were 2-0 going into Week 3, but Ebere Egbirika put up a 15-point performance to help the London programme to an opening win.

Charlotte Finn continued her fine form with another 18 points.

John Madejski Academy 89-96 Barking Abbey

The other contest in the South saw Barking see off JMA in a high scoring match-up.

Ines Goryanova posted a huge 36 points as the visitors bounced back from a shock week 2 defeat, while JMA were powered by 20 points from Sitota Gines Espinosa.
