Barking Abbey Crusaders 60 (12, 28, 46) (Wilkinson 16, Russell 14, Naydenova-Goryanova 11)
Westfield Health Sheffield Hatters 79 (23, 49, 67) (Gandy 27, Royo Torres 17, Naylor 14)
Westfield Health Sheffield Hatters stretched their winning streak to 14 games with a dominant display to triumph 79-60 at Barking Abbey Crusaders on Sunday.
The league leaders have been in imperious form of late and but for a short spell in the opening moments played comfortable front-runners throughout.
Crusaders themselves had won their three previous games but simply could not match the balanced and efficient offence of Vanessa Ellis’ side.
The visitors established a healthy lead after 10 minutes and were in complete control after that.
Steph Gandy was once again the driving force, finishing with 29 points and nine rebounds as Estela Royo Torres added 17 and nine rebounds while Helen Naylor filled the stat sheet once more with 14 points, seven assists and five rebounds.
Savannah Wilkinson continues to impress for Abbey, tallying 16 points to go with 11 rebounds, but Hatters had too much depth for Mark Clark’s rising stars.
