BURY Blue Devils suffered their worst defeat in more than two years when they lost 108-64 to Myerscough College at home.

In the second game of the new season, Bury took the lead at 7-5 after a Jalees Siddiq basket but that was the last time they would be in front as the visitors went on a 14-3 points run and did not look back.

Youngsters Omar Abbassey and Callum Brady gave their all with Brady finding the basket early on while Nick Metcalfe found a rhythm in the second quarter, helping Bury to fight back to be trailing by only four points.

But a 14-2 run from the visitors blew them away.

Ste Graham and Stuart Jackson managed to find a rare open shot but Myerscough were in their element, leading 59-31 at half time.

Bury tried changing the defence from man-to-man to zonal, but Myerscough adjusted and shot well from distance.

Chris Stainton managed to hit the target and Abbassey found his range but it was too little, too late.

Defensively, Bury could not contain the visitors and offensively the team looked out of shape.

The 44-point final deficit left Bury with lots of adjustments to consider to get things back on track for their cup game at Stockport.
