Archers shot down in second half

A strong second half saw Wolves collect their fifth win of the campaign on Saturday as Cardiff Archers were beaten 87-59.

The Welsh side were outscored 50-26 after half-time as Ryan's team collected their first league double of the campaign.

Catterrion Thompson again led the hosts with 19 points, adding four assists and as many rebounds in 28 minutes while Shaq Wade missed a double-double by a single board, finishing with 12 points. Beth Sarson added 11 points, Allison Day had ten, while Claire Abbott, Amy West Julia Koppl all finished with nine.

There was little to choose between the sides in the first period, with Thompson's lay-up sending the teams into the first break tied on 17.

Wade's pair of baskets opened the second period and gave Wolves a lead they would never lose, and triples from Abbott and Wade sent the hosts into the locker room with a 37-33 half-time lead.

Abbott drained a trey to open the second half and a pair of Day free-throws saw the lead reach double digits and Thompson also scored from downtown as Wolves outscored the Welsh side 25-8 to lead 62-41 at the final break.
