SWINDON Shock endured a mixed weekend of results as an 88-82 win over Barking Abbey on Saturday preceded a 113-102 loss to Cardiff Met Archers in Wales on Sunday.

Shock’s mixed fortunes leave them on a record of nine wins and six defeats in National League Three South, with just their rearranged fixture against the leading team, London Medelynas still to play.

David Colclough’s side started their weekend by stringing together consecutive wins, courtesy of a storming fourth-quarter comeback victory against Barking Abbey.

Shock made a sluggish start to the game, putting up just 15 points compared to their opponents 19, and were only able to narrow the deficit in the second quarter by one point – 40-37 was the half-time score.

Another 22-21 period followed though to reduce the deficit to just two points before Colclough’s side powered past the team that have only won three times all season to emerge victorious.

Antonio Wilburn top-scored with 29 while Mantas Kmita netted 16 and Matt Ford put up 14.

Unfortunately for Swindon, they could not ensure a top-four finish with victory away in Cardiff, losing three of the first four periods – potentially suffering from fatigue having played the day before.

Archers raced out into the lead with 29 first-period points and 27 in the second, compared to Swindon’s 23 and 26, respectively.

Cardiff increased their lead from seven points to 13 in the third before Shock clawed back a consolation period victory in the final quarter thanks to a mini 25-23 win.

Wilburn top-scored once again with 27, although Ford was close behind with 26 while Kmita and Alistair Tilney recorded 16 each.
