Suns maintain 100% league record despite temporary scare from London Lions

WBBL Championship: Sevenoaks Suns 56 BA London Lions 51

Sevenoaks Suns temporarily returned to the top of the WBBL Championship table after overcoming a strong BA London Lions, at home on Sunday afternoon.

It maintains their perfect league record, moving to 14-0, whilst Leicester Riders occupy top spot having played three games more. The visitors led by five early in the contest, but Sevenoaks moved ahead and never looked back, although it was never comfortable. The gap peaked at 10 points with the Lions staying competitive and kept up the pressure to the final buzzer.

Sevenoaks gave up 18 turnovers in the contest, though they were not punished as their defence kept their opponents to under 30% shooting from the floor.

Clark led the way for the Suns with a game-high 18 points along with seven rebounds and three assists with two other team-mates in double figures in the win. Leading scorers for Sevenoaks were Clark (18), Judit Fritz (10) and Jess Good (10).

Suns Head Coach Len Busch was somewhat unimpressed with the win though, stating that his players hadn’t turned up for the match, “We will go through the video and see what went wrong as the players struggled to get maximum points on the board today” he said.
