GCA Haringey Angels claimed the Under-16 National Title with a 52-46 win over Ipswich Basketball Club in the final on Sunday in Manchester.
GCA Haringey Angels’ captain Teresa Da Silva (10) and the MVP Mariam Matovu (12) saw their side through to the win, being ably supported by Jolicia Cadogan (9), and 8-a-piece from Jade Guidolin-Duncan and Aaliyah Samuels-Campbell.
“I’m really pleased with the way they played,” explained GCA Haringey Angels coach Phil Hayfield.
“They didn’t give up and scrapped hard on defence, like they’ve always done. We had a bad first quarter, but we then knocked them down and got the job done so I’m pleased.”
Ipswich skipper Ester Little scored a game-high 20 for her side with 11 rebounds, but it wouldn’t be enough.
