Queen Ethelburga’s College vs Aston Manor Academy

Aston Manor continued their unbeaten streak with a hard fought overtime win on the road against Queen Ethelburga’s college on Wednesday afternoon with the final score reading 88-76.

A close game throughout, the visitors asserted their dominance in the 5-minute overtime and were able to keep their unbeaten streak alive. Conroy Hayden was dominant for Aston Manor, finishing with a stat line of 18 points and 20 rebounds. He was ably backed up by Zack Powell who ended the night with 22 points.

“Aston Manor were fantastic today”, said QE Coach Josh Metcalf. “I am incredibly proud of how hard our guys fought against such a talented team and it’s yet another close game this season all players involved will learn from.”

Eisley Swaine was again a force to be reckoned with for the hosts, posting a stat line of 25 points, 11 assists, 10 rebounds and 6 steals and was supported by fellow guard Jayden Martin who finished with 18 points and 8 rebounds.

QE will look to bounce back from their second loss of the season when they travel to Nottingham academy next week, while Aston Manor host Tyne Met at the Lighthouse.
