Loreto v Charnwood

Charnwood College opened their 2017-18 WEABL campaign in style with a 27-88 victory away at Loreto Mystics Basketball Academy.

Holly Winterburn poured in 41 points to get last season’s runners-up off to a winning start.

The visitors started with a high tempo pressing game that led to easy lay-ups and they never looked back en route to victory.

“It was a good performance by our girls today,” said Loreto Head Coach Aurimas Verbukas.

“We are building towards being the best basketball academy for girls in the country with home-grown players.

“I can see that we are moving in the right direction.”

Chloe Andrew and Fiona Connolly both had eight points apiece for the home side.

Loreto will play away at Myerscough College next week, whilst Charnwood College host Myerscough on November 8.
