CoLA Southwark Pride 65-63 Cardiff Met Archers II

CoLA stretched their impressive win streak - but were made to work hard for their eighth successive victory by Cardiff and needed an added period to get the job done.

Funmi Amode and Emily O'connell had 12 apiece for the Londoners and young talent Isi Ozzy-Momodu picked up an efficient double double of 10 points and 13 rebounds in 20 minutes of action.

Cardiff, for whom Denisa Molnar hit 26, made a strong start and took the opening quarter by four points but CoLA regained command at the break, leading 36-31.

Cardiff rallied to level it at 48 each going into the final period and it was tied at 57 at the end of regulation time.

It remained neck and neck until Emilie Black's late winner via a lay-up, sealed the win for the home team.
