BUCS South Eastern 1A: UEL 36 Hertfordshire 69

UEL women’s basketball fought hard against Hertfordshire University, but ultimately fell at the SportsDock.

The hosts dominated much of the third quarter after falling 17 points behind at halftime, but collapsed in the final 15 minutes.

UEL opened the scoring before Herts scored six quick points, but the hosts hit a three to draw within one.

Herts led at the end of the first quarter, but with the score just 14-9, UEL were still very much in the match.

UEL gave up six straight points to start the second and called a timeout to regroup. The East Londoners pulled the game back to 20-12 but then Herts charged ahead again, leading by 13 with less than three minutes remaining and ending the half ahead 33-16.

The hosts finally found some momentum and outscored their opponent 13-5. But with less than a quarter left to play, Herts shut down the UEL scoring attack and raced away to a 33-point win.
