Solid win for Women's Basketball

The University of East London Women’s Basketball squad bounced back from last week’s loss to Sussex and knocked off Imperial College London at SportsDock, 52-44.

UEL were down 10-4 well into the first quarter, but a 5-0 run brought them to within one point by the end of the quarter.

UEL took the lead 20 seconds into the second quarter and led 17-12 with five minutes to play in the half.

This time it was Imperial who rallied, scoring just before the stroke of halftime to draw the scores level at 22.

Imperial briefly pulled ahead in the third period, 30-29, but UEL came back to take charge of the game, eventually going on to win by eight points.

UEL are now 1-1 on the season and will play Royal Holloway away next Wednesday at 6:30pm.
