SEYCHELLES : Lesperance banks five treys against former team

DARREN LESPERANCE wanted to prove a point against his former team on Sunday as he helped Premium Cobras steamroller Angels 104-67 in a Men’s Division One match at the Palais des Sports.

Seychelles international Lesperance, who joined the Cobras during the mid-season break, came off the bench to score 17 points, including five treys.
He was one of four players in double figures as the Cobras got balanced scoring.
Nigerian Alao Solomon led all scores with 36 points, including three 3-pointers, compatriot Simon Pusam added 15 and Seychelles power forward Dominic Pillay got 12 as Premium Cobras collected their 14th win in 16 games for 30 points.
As for Angels, Keiren Agathine carried the scoring load with 22 points and was helped in offence by Norcy Agathine with 18 personal points – among those 12 coming from behind the arc.
The defeat was Angels’ ninth in 16 matches for 23 points.

In a Men’s Division Two encounter, Pointe Larue Falcons got 21 points from Sam Gabriel and 17 from Gaetan Galman on the way to a 64-35 defeat of Cadets.
The Falcons, whose chances of winning automatic promotion to the Men’s Division One league next season are now almost over as they have conceded three defeats, have 25 points after 12 wins in 15 games played.
Cadets were paced by Alvin Belize with 11 points.

In the Women’s League, Juniors were no match for RA Sisters and they went down 14-108 on Sunday.

The Sisters dominated all four quarters, 22-2, 13-8, 40-4 and 33-2, on the way to their fourth win in 10 games for 14 points.
Tessa Mathiot led all scores with 34 points, but skipper Sylvie Port-Louis got 26 and Sylvia Sophie 17 to help RA Sisters finish fourth in the six-team league championship.
Juniors, who got five points from both Sandra Hoareau and Jurysanne Mémé, have lost all their 10 games.
If Juniors have not been able to celebrate victory even once, HotShots finished the season with an unbeaten record in 10 games to dethrone Anse Etoile Stars as champions.
The Stars needed to win by a 12-point margin in Saturday’s title decider to keep alive their chances of defending their title, but they lost 59-62.
