Charnwood vs James Watt College

Charnwood take the 90-72 victory over James Watt College in their final home game of the regular season, remaining undefeated in the campaign.

Charnwood opened up the lead early in the game with some early 3 pointers however, James Watt stuck around with some easy scores to remain in the game with just a narrow deficit of 2 points after the first period. A sloppy second quarter from both teams saw a number of unforced turnovers from both teams, which allowed some easy scores in transition on either end, however some inside scoring allowed Charnwood to take a lead, 54 to 37.

Charnwood’s defence stepped up in the third quarter only allowing 11 points from the visitors, having an advantage of 26 point after the 3rd period. The visitors didn’t give up and they found some strong scores from leading scorer Daniel Penkov, who finished with 24 of his own. However, with the comfortable lead the home side held them off and came out on top 90-72.

Head Coach Will Maynard was not pleased with the amount of turnovers his team had, “we didn’t do a good job tonight taking care of the ball, credit to James Watts defence who didn’t give up the whole game and forces some of them, but ultimately we had too many unforced turnovers. We need to be better moving forward. We were sloppy on both ends of the floor tonight, now its how we react and how we now improve in practice.”

Charnwood head north next week to face Myerscough in a top of the table clash in Preston.
