PRESTON — Myerscough slumped to a 45-32 defeat to City of London Academy (CoLA) on Wednesday in the Women’s Elite Academy Basketball League.

Milly Knowles scored 12 points and Shauna Harrison added 10 for Myerscough (1-3) in the loss.

“We’ve been going away from what we’ve done previously — we’re not kicking the ball ahead and we’ve had good results from that,” said Myerscough guard Harrison.

Myerscough saw an two-point lead evaporate following an 7-0 run that gave CoLA a 13-9 advantage. The hosts, however, hung tight in a low scoring first quarter before CoLA broke open an 18-13 game to lead by 10 at the break.

CoLA then outscored Myerscough 13-6 in the third quarter to build a 37-20 lead and the gap never dipped below 11.

Maya Hyacienth and Megan Haines led CoLA (2-1) with 12 points each.
