SEYCHELLES : National League - Frontrunners maintain pace

THE frontrunners kept up the pace in the fight for the Men’s Division One title with wins in their latest matches.

Defending champions PLS Hawks were paced by Ugandan all-rounder Stephen Omony with 31 points, centre Rodney Lozé (19 points), new recruit Timmy Adam from MBU Rockers (17 points) and veteran shooter Heribert Derjacques (11 points) as they reached the century mark in their 115-43 thumping of lowly Beau Vallon Heat.
The win was their 10th in 11 games played and they are second in the 10-team standings behind leaders Premium Cobras, who also have 10 victories and a loss.
With former Angels’ sharpshooter Darren Lesperance and ex-Razors’ forward Alex Baron in their ranks, the Cobras fended off the challenge of RC Dynamics in an 83-65 victory.
Nigerian Alao Solomon again carried Premium Cobras’ scoring load with 36 points.
Premium Cobras lead the standings on the head-to-head rule after edging PLS Hawks 89-86 in a come-from-behind first-round match-up victory on the back of a season-leading 52 points from Solomon.
Baya remain third after collecting their ninth victory, which came against Razors. They also clocked up a century in their 108-78 win. Jean-Paul Camille (29 points) and Robert Léon (28 points) combined for 57 of the winning team’s points.
MBU Rockers brought their win record to eight in 11 games with a 65-44 defeat of Cascade Bullets, who remain in the bottom half of the standings with 13 points after two wins and nine losses.
Anse Boileau-based Angels travelled to Praslin last Saturday and returned the same day with a 95-86 victory over hosts Praslin Warriors. They have now brought their winning total to six in 10 games.
In the Men’s Division Two, Juniors got 34 points including two 3-pointers from Abdel Sylla in a 93-35 victory over LMS Youth, and Anse Etoile defeated Drifters 92-67.
Mont Fleuri showed no pity for Juniors in the Women’s League, inflicting an 83-11 defeat on the youthful side who lost their previous match by a walkover against former Women’s champions Anse Etoile Stars.
