Loreto v Charnwood

Charnwood College emerged victorious against Loreto Sixth Form in their North Conference encounter at Amaechi Basketball Centre with a 20-100 score line to remain unbeaten.

Jessica Eadsforth-Yates led the visitors with 28, Anna Popovic had a 21-point haul, while Megan Jones added 19 points in the win, with Fiona Connolly scoring 13 for Loreto.

The early exchanges would see the teams feeling each other out, with both sides connecting from long range to entertain the spectators.

As the game wore on, the athleticism of the East Midlands outfit would tell in the transition game to gain some separation on the scoreboard as Loreto suffered turnover woes to surrender a big deficit they wouldn’t recover from.

Loreto coach Greg Mpofu said “We had some lapses that they made us pay for, for certain. We had some encouraging moments, but possibly a lack of confidence held us back from achieving a bit more out of them.

“Some of these ladies are capable of doing more for us, it’s time for them to start believing it now.”

Charnwood improve to a 7-0 record at the top of the North, while Loreto still await their first win and the two teams meet again in two weeks time.
