Barking & Dagenham Erkenwald Basketball Club

Match Report Tuesday 9th March 2004
Erks 70 Emminence 74

A disastrous first quarter from the Erks once again gave them a mountain to climb but a good comeback never produced a win. The home side fell behind 30 – 8 from sloppy turnovers converted to fast break baskets and a couple of long range 3 pointers from ex NBL guard Mike Richardson.

A switch to a zone from the Erks yielded some success as the Erks plugged away at the lead to bring it back to 42 – 33 at the half and 60 – 53 at the end of the third. Although Craig Morris went off injured at the start of the fourth for the Erks, the home side pulled back to within 1 point at 63 – 62 in the fourth minute. However, a final flurry of points saw the visitors take a final 11 – 8 advantage in the last couple of minutes to seal the double over the Erks in this season’s LMBL.

Erks scorers:
Declan McCusker 2, Martin Overare 13, Lee Atkinson 1, John Kimani 10, Paul Haydan 5, Garbage Time Dave Churches 21, Craig Morris 18
