Charnwood College vs City of London Academy

The WEABL Final saw the MVPs of both the Northern and Southern Conference face off against each other as Charnwood came out victorious over City of London Academy by a score of 66-40.

The 1st quarter started with Charnwood playing great defence, moving out to a quick 7-0 lead. CoLA then converted one of two from the line to get themselves on the board but the Northern Conference winners continued to play lock down defence for the rest of quarter to lead 13-1 by the first change.

Coach Gibbons’ side started the 2nd quarter slowly as well, only able to score from the free throw line as Charnwood quickly started to assert their dominance with a few great scores from eventual MVP Megan Jones. As CoLA slipped further behind at 22-4, the London side finally went on a small run off the back of foul shooting and some good plays from Megan Haines, ending the half at 27-16.

The second half started with a steal from young star Holly Winterburn and a tough transition finish by Niamh Kelshaw. Coach Patel’s side never let up as a big 3 pointer from Kelshaw to beat the shot clock further stretched the difference. After another break up and assist from Winterburn was converted by Jones this time, Charnwood hit another triple to make it 37-18 and the game was becoming one sided.

The fourth quarter followed a similar pattern as Charnwood continued to dominate, stretching their lead north of the 30 point mark. A few late three pointers saw CoLA cut their deficit down a little but the final result was never in doubt.

Charnwood Top Scorers: Megan Jones with 14, Niamh Kelshaw with 13 and Holy Wright with 9.
