Suns ton-up with Trophy win on the road at Rebels

WBBL Trophy: Essex Rebels 58 Sevenoaks Suns 101

Sevenoaks Suns concluded the group phase of the Trophy with a 101-58 victory over Essex Rebels, at Essex Sports Arena on Sunday evening.

The Suns will now face Leicester Riders in the next round, having qualified for the Semi-Finals with a perfect 4-0 group record. Essex meanwhile must wait until next season to get off the mark in the competition, having failed to pick up a victory this time around.

Sevenoaks wasted no time establishing their dominance on proceedings, racing out to a 20-point lead after the opening 10 minutes to all but end Essex’s hopes of a shock result.

The Rebels were unable to keep pace with Sevenoaks’ offence from the outset and the visitors poured in more than 25 points in each of the first three quarters of the game, allowing the Suns to surpass the 100-point barrier before the final buzzer sounded.

Jessica Good, Judit Fritz and Renee Busch combined for 71 of Sevenoaks’ 101 total points. The trio each netted at least 20 points on what proved to be a comfortable night for the Suns.

Leading scorers for Sevenoaks Suns were Fritz (25), Good (24) and Busch (22), whilst the rest of the squad were all on the scoreboard. The semi-final will be played on Saturday 2nd March away at Leicester’s Netball Centre, tip-off at 4.30pm.
