WNBL1 recap: 11/12 November - live streams, stats and more

Six games took place in D1W this past weekend, with some standout results across the two days.

Brent are the only remaining unbeaten team after their win over Manchester and CoLA's OT victory over Ipswich yesterday, whilst Bristol, Birmingham, Barking and Loughborough also picked up key results.

We take a look at all of the weekend's games below, with links to live stats and live streams at the bottom of the page.

CoLA Southwark Pride (3-2) 102-95 Endeavour Ipswich Basketball (5-1) (After 1OT)

CoLA and Endeavour Ipswich Basketball produced a high-scoring thriller yesterday, with the Londoners emerging as eventual 102-95 winners.

With both teams allowing less than 58.0PPG coming into the weekend, offence didn't seem likely to be the focal point in this one, but the contest left fans with plenty to enjoy as it ebbed and flowed throughout.

Ipswich led by double digits deep into the fourth quarter but the hosts would come roaring back, scoring 13 unanswered points to force an extra period and eventually claim the W.

CoLA were powered by double-double performances from Felicia Jacobs (21pts, 12reb) and Violet Stutz (19pts, 10reb), plus 20 points from Glory Kabia.

Credit should also go to Pride's Madeleine Warren, who played an explosive cameo off the bench to help swing the contest, dropping 18 points included 6/8 from beyond the arc in just 11:57 of action.

Two of those triples came in the last 60 seconds of regulation as part of CoLA's epic fight back, with another coming in OT.

Ipswich enjoyed 31 points and nine boards from Harriet Welham, with Liv Forster and Yazmin Edwards both adding 22 more.

Defeat still leaves Ipswich top of the division, though that could change if Brent can win their two games in hand. CoLA also climb back into the top four and will no doubt feel a title challenge is still well and truly on the cards.


Elsewhere this weekend

Loughborough Riders (4-3) piled more misery onto Team Solent Kestrels (0-5) with a heavy 81-39 victory.

A 31-13 opening quarter and 16 points from former Kestrel Erin Caldwell got the job done, with Solent remaining as D1W's only winless team.

A buzzer-beater from Megan Verbeeten helped Barking Abbey (3-3) squeeze past Anglia Ruskin University (3-4) 56-55.

Ruchae Walton (16pts, 12reb) would continue her hot form for BA, with Nadege Talva (13pts, 9reb) the pick of the bunch for ARU.

Bristol Academy Flyers (2-4) grabbed their second win in as many weeks, ending the three game win streak of Thames Valley Cavaliers (3-3) with a 71-66 final score.

Cristina Bigica's was once again pulling the string for the hosts to close with a team-high 18 points, cancelling out 23 points and seven boards from TVC's Chinwe Iwunze.

City of Birmingham Rockets (2-3) inflicted a third straight defeat on Reading Rockets (2-3), who's 2-0 start must now feel like a distant memory.

CoB led from tip to buzzer for the 67-63 victory, with Reading's late fight back falling just short. Nuri Seyedagha top scored for the hosts with 16 points as Lindsey Cleary had a 12 point, 16 rebound double-double for Reading.

Sunday's only other game saw Brent Bulls (4-0) remain unbeaten following a straightforward 77-39 win over Manchester Mystics (3-3).

Judit Fritz continued her good form to drop a game-high 22 points, pushing the Mystics to their third loss on the bounce.
