Barking & Dagenham Erkenwald Basketball Club

Match Report EMBL - Sunday 29th February 2004
Hainault Stars 72
Erks 2 63


An out of sorts Erks 2 team, with a number of missing players, lost for only the second time in the Essex Met league this season to Hainult. A very slow start saw Erks fall behind 18 - 6 within 5 minutes and when Paul Edwards of Hainult hit his fourth 3 pointer of the quarter, Erks trailed 24 - 12.

A switch to zone defence in the second quarter had some success as Erks pulled back with Paul Haydan and John Kimani starting to find their range and Erks went into the half trailing by 4 points at 38 - 34.

A 14 - 2 run, including 7 straight points from Garbage Time Dave Churches, midway through the third saw the Erks take the lead for the first time at 48 - 46. However, some sloppy defence saw Hainult retake the lead by 55 - 51 going into the final quarter. A 12 - 3 run for the home side at the start of the final quarter put the game out of reach for the Erks as their scoring continued to let them down until the end.

Erks scorers:
Declan McCusker 5; Lee Atkinson 2; Martin Overare 4; Paul Haydan 12; Peter Haydan 6; John Kimani 13; Dave Churches 21.
