The third quarter resulted in Holloway attacking more than they had done all match, which inevitably led to them scoring more points and gaining an even larger lead over UEL.

The quarter ended 79-34 to the visitors, and they looked to be in full control of the match and confident.

Despite Holloway’s astounding lead, UEL didn’t let their spirits drop. They continued to fight in the final quarter and didn’t allow the away side have it easy.

However, this wasn’t enough to keep them in the cup and the game ended 92-49 to an impressive Royal Holloway.

UEL will be disappointed to be out of the cup, but they can be proud of their performance against a strong opponent, who managed to put themselves out of the east Londoners reach in the middle two quarters.

The hosts can now turn their attention to their match against Hertfordshire next Wednesday, in order to continue their impressive league form.
