Recap

Newcastle U18s win on the road at Cheshire Phoenix

The game started with the home attempting to score from beyond the arc and succeeding. The visiting team however had other ideas, after quickly realising certain shortfalls of individual players, the visitors pressured the home team to take poor quality shots and forcing turnovers in the front court. Spoors and Ridley pressured the ball and Evboumwan and Lievin took care of the interior scoring. Lievin looking more confident in the second half to this season. 1st quarter ended in favour of the visitors 13-18.

The second quarter saw more of the same as the Eagles found their offensive rhythm and punished the home with an impressive shooting display. The first half ended 23-38.

The first half Spoors defensive intensity was the turning point in momentum from the home team to the visiting as he took charge on both ends of the floor. In third quarter the home team made a few mistakes of their own to allowing Eagles to score. The 3rd quarter ended 58-36.

The fourth saw the Eagles try to hold their ground to take the final buzzer and the win 60-75.

U18s Head Coach, Calvin George said: “It was good game, Not a particularly good 4th quarter but we are moving in the right direction.”

Eagles U18s next take on top of the table Charnwood at home.
