WEABL Week 7 Round Up

A three-game slate in the WEABL for Week 7 action saw Charnwood College and City of London Academy continue their good starts to the season with dominant wins, while there was a close game over in Nottingham!


Northern Conference

Charnwood College moved to 2-0 on the season with a routine 98-39 win over Manchester Mystics Academy, as the loss sees the North West side drop to 1-2. A competitive first quarter from both teams saw some even exchanges in the early going, as Charnwood finished the first period up 16-14. However, after a couple adjustments, Charnwood started to kick into gear which saw seven different players score and give Riders a 22 point lead at the half; a lead which would grow throughout the second half. Holly Winterburn led the hosts with 18 points, supported by 15 from Rebecca Morrision and 12 from Holly Davies. Meanwhile, Jade Mbam had 11 points to pace Manchester, while Chloe Andrew chipped in 10.

The closest game in Week 7 saw Myerscough College travel to the East Midlands to face Nottingham Academy Wildcats, as the North West used a solid third quarter performance to pull away and eventual grab a 56-67 win. The victory sees Myerscough improve to 2-0 on the season, to tie with Charnwood atop the Northern Conference, while Nottingham drop to 0-3 still in search of a maiden win this campaign. Celina Eisenhardt finished with a game-high 18 points for Myerscough, whilst Kyra Smith added 16 for the away side. Nottingham were led by 13 points from Mariam Olawoyin.


Southern Conference

The lone action in the Southern Conference saw City of London Academy play host to Oaklands College, with CoLA winning 82-23 in a one-sided affair against the Hertfordshire side to improve to 2-1 on the season. With CoLA winning the first quarter 35-4 without applying too much pressure, the rest of the game seemed to be a formality in terms the result. However, Oaklands rallied in the second quarter and showed their capabilities to be a competitive team in this league with the quarter ending just 12-7 in favour of the hosts. CoLA were paced by Amelia Sandie and Jade Guidolin-Duncan with 15 points apiece, supported by Megan Haines who added 12. Oaklands were led in scoring by Maisie Moore and Khia Lee who had six points apiece.
