Sevenoaks Suns are in heaven after Riders rout

Sevenoaks Suns set out an early statement of intent with an emphatic 85-49 victory over Leicester Riders in an early meeting between last season’s top two. Cat Carr led the way with a 21-point haul as the Suns moved to a 2-0 start.

They were the two leading contenders for the WBBL Championship title last year and eventual champions Sevenoaks flexed their muscles early this time around with a dominant victory.

There was no real turning point in this match as Sevenoaks jumped out on Leicester from the opening period and continued to soar.

It’s hard to look at Riders shooting stats without wincing. Tough opening night and didn’t find any rhythm. Suns started quickly and never had cause to look back as it proved to be a disappointing game for new Riders head coach, Jesper Sundberg.

Cat Carr top-scored with 21 points whilst team mates, Janice Monakana (14), Renee Busch (12) also scoring high. It was a real team effort by Suns as usual.
