Myerscough’s comeback falls short in Bristol 

Bristol, England – Myerscough travelled to the Southwest for the third time this season as they matched up against Bristol Hurricanes on Saturday afternoon. Despite winning three of the four quarters on the day, a poor second (29-11) ultimately proved to be costly as the visiting side fell, 79-70.  

Euan Birch connected on all three of his three pointers in the opening quarter as Myerscough built an early lead, 17-22.  

Bristol held Myerscough scoreless for the last 5 minutes of the second quarter and exploded for a 14-0 to catapult them into a 46-33 advantage at the halftime break.  

Both teams traded blows throughout the third quarter as Myerscough fought to reduce the deficit whilst Bristol had an answer on every occasion and still maintained a double-digit lead going into the final quarter, 61-50.  

Momentum would swing one more time as it was Myerscough’s turn to go on a run and when Dayvantia Campbell-Deeble finished at the rim off a Stephen Asante steal the deficit was reduced to just 4 points before late three pointers from Sam Sanders and Mark James thwarted the Myerscough comeback.   

Stephen Asante led Myerscough with 13 points to go along with 5 rebounds and 4 steals whilst brother Peter filled the stat sheet with 11 points (4-6 FG), 15 rebounds and 6 assists. Dayvantia Campbell-Deeble added 12 points and 6 rebounds off the bench.  

Sam Sanders had a game-high 27 points on 10-20 FG whilst Rhys Farrell added 12 points of his own. Adam Pearce, Mark James and Karim Tadros all reached double figures with 10 each.  

Despite Myerscough outrebounding their opponents 53-46, they committed 18 turnovers which Bristol turned into 21 points and struggled from the free throw line (16-32) which proved costly in such a close game. 

Myerscough (7-12) are back on the road this coming weekend with a double-header against St Helens Saints (15-2) on Saturday and Worcester Wolves (14-6) on Sunday.
