Connor Mackay previews the Barking Abbey Crusaders upcoming WBBL playoff game against the Sevenoaks Suns…
The Barking Abbey Crusaders take on Sevenoaks Suns in the first round of the playoffs, this Saturday at Barking Abbey School Leisure Centre at4pm.
Barking Abbey Crusaders look to bounce back from a two game losing skid following their recent 68-58 loss against Cardiff Met Archers.
Team GB and Barking Abbey veteran, Savannah Wilkinson is out for the Crusaders due to injury, which means that coach Clark will have to look to his younger squad members to step up and get the job done.
Barking’s Tereza Brantlova will be a player to watch as she shows increasing consistency in every game and is a deadly shooter from beyond the three-point line.
Both teams met earlier in the season, resulting in a win for each. Barking suffered an eight point loss in their last matchup against Sevenoaks Suns but will look to start strong and make their mark in the opening playoff games.
Sevenoaks Suns have lost four games in a row taking their record to 7-9 for the season. Sevenoaks will look to their star player Chantelle Pressley, who is averaging 17 points a game to help them get the win.
Only a win will see Barking Abbey advance through to the quarter finals, where they’re likely to face even tougher competition. Team chemistry will be key if they want to proceed into tht playoffs.
