Elite Academy Basketball League: City of London Academy 62 Barking Abbey 77

Barking Abbey kept their Elite Academy Basketball League (EABL) win streak going with a 77-62 win over City of London Academy (CoLA) on Monday.

Trailing at the half, Abbey responded with a dominant third quarter to move to 8-0 on the season.

Ade Adebayo and Daniel Delgado both had 16 points, while Micah Savery-Richards scored 10 points for the victors.

“Today was a really good win for us,” Barking head coach Lloyd Gardner said. “

“CoLA came out and played really well and we all know what a difficult place it is to play and beat them on their floor.

“They came out and established a lead and we played flat defensively. Then second half, especially in the third quarter, we really started to put it together.

“We had a couple of guys really step up in the third period to cut back their lead.

“I was really proud the mental strength we showed today to be able to come back and get the solid victory.”
