Quarter 3 the eagles came out strong putting the home team in foul trouble and getting to the line. But the home team put on a shooting clinic keeping it very close and hitting some big shots down the stretch.
The Eagles Evbuomwan rose to the occasion and took the lead role in the offensive charge against the home team getting 3 fouls where the basket counted as well and got to line several times in the 4th quarter.
U18s Head Coach, Calvin George said: “A disappointing result as we struggled in transition to score and play defence. Leeds have definitely made some big improvements and it showed. ”
