Sevenoaks Suns crush Sheffield to go clear at the top

The Sevenoaks Suns returned to league action in the Womens British Basketball League Championship (WBBL) crushing the Sheffield Hatters 84pts to 52pts.

They inflicted only a second league loss on the Hatters with a rampant performance from tip to buzzer as they reacted to being unexpectedly dumped out of the WBBL Cup the week before.
Long road trips can be a tiring and daunting affair for many clubs in a variety of sports, and the same goes for the Sevenoaks Suns womens basketball team.

A long journey up the M1 to Sheffield was just the start of this fantastic result for the club as the Hatters were, for many weeks, looking like the main challengers for the championship title and the team to beat.

So, there remains just one unblemished record in the WBBL Championship after the still perfect Suns made a serious statement of their title ambitions, and with only two league games lost since the start of 2017, they are now the team to beat going into the second half of the season.

The Suns came straight out from the tip in this WBBL match and were up at the end of the first quarter 29-17. They continued their amazing play and by halftime they were winning 49-29.

The second half was a little more conservative however and although Sevenoaks’ guns were blazing, the Hatters kept them to a 12-point game. Sevenoaks then turned up the heat and went on to win 84-52. There were some excellent boxing out by Suns who restricted Hatters to a paltry four offensive rebounds in the entire contest. Game hero, Cat Carr, showed why she is one of the biggest stars in the WBBL with a fantastic effort that resulted in 27 points and eight assists.

Leading scorers for the Suns were Cat Carr (27pts), Tayani Clark (11pts), Renee Busch (10pts), Judit Fritz (10pts).

The Suns next match is a home fixture against Durham Palantinates, who sit at the bottom of the table with no wins this season. The match will tip off at 3.00pm on Sunday 10th December at the Sennocke Centre.
