MATCH REPORTS: United win at Teesside

London United made it 3 in a row by defeating Teesside Mohawks in the North East on Sunday by a massive 32 point margin.

After the long trip up the M1 the London team were determined to keep their winning ways in the EBL Division One and show their "bouncebackability" after losing in the Cup last week.

From the get go United hit a long jumper and a "trey" from Jagodka and one from Mumuni as London tore into a 10-1 lead. However Teesside managed to make a rally through Corey Jackson and brought the scores back to 12-19 in London favour at the close of the first quarter.

It was the second quarter that saw United kill the game off as at 24-15 they made a 21-3 run which saw them take a half time lead at 26-51. It was Jagodkas ability to get out on the break that really hurt Teesside as well as London's all round team game with some good finishing from Deppisch.

London kept up the intensity in the second half, and at one time increased the lead to 40 points. Vear was instrumental in his floor leadership, always looking to pass the ball to the open men as Junior Williams, coming off of illness continued the good point guard work.

Inside players Callender, Reid and Van Elswyk played their part in keeping Teesside off of the boards and enabling the breakaway baskets.

The game finished with London taking an emphatic win at a place that has always been difficult to play at and the players and coaches were ready to face the 5 hour journey home with the "W".

London's top scorers were Jagodka 26, Deppisch 23 and Williams 13.

London now face a tough away game at Reading on Saturday with both teams unbeaten in the League, then face London Capitals in the Trophy at Brunel, Uxbridge on Sunday at 4pm, tickets are available on the door.
