WESSEX CUP FINALS 2015/16 REPORT

KARL TAYLOR CUP:  South Bucks beat Woodley Warriors  67 – 48
The first quarter of the game was evenly contested after early pressure from South Bucks.  Despite some energetic play from Woodley, South Bucks led by three points at the end of the quarter mainly through strong contributions under the basket by their taller players.  The second quarter followed a similar pattern although early on Woodley succeeded in taking a small lead before South Bucks regained their composure to extend their advantage to ten points at half time.  The second half followed a similar pattern as South Bucks controlled the game to the final whistle eventually winning by a nineteen point advantage.  The outstanding player of the final was the South Bucks No.10, Kian Langois  who deservedly picked up the MVP award.

RICHARD BELL CUP:  Aztec Storm beat Camberley Goldhawks  60 – 31
A strong Aztec Storm overcame a game Camberley unit  in the Richard Bell Cup Final.  Aztecs built an early lead that they didn’t look like relinquishing in the first quarter.  Whatever formation they had on court, they always had the better of an experienced Camberley side. Aztecs won the first quarter by nine points and stretched this to 22 points by half time.  Aztec continued to dominate the second half with strong contributions from Dorney-Savage, Wellington and Fellows ensuring that Camberley could not come back into the game.  The final score of 60 – 31 was well deserved.  There were a number of players  in line for the MVP award, but it was eventually awarded to Becky Wellington from Aztec Storm.

KARL TAYLOR PLATE:  Aztec Jaguars beat Aztec Lemmings   97 – 37
In an all Aztec affair, the Division 1 side outplayed their opposition winning each quarter easily.  Lemmings fought well throughout but there were too many class players in the Jaguars team, winning each quarter by 13, 13, 14 and 20 points respectively.  The main difference between the teams was the clinical finishing from the Jaguars players and an outstanding individual performance from Jarrad Adams who deservedly was awarded the MVP Award.

RICHARD BELL PLATE:  Woking Blackhawks Ladies beat Aldworth Darts  82 – 34
Woking from Division 1, easily overcame a young Aldworth team through a mix of aggression and experience. The game as a contest was over after the first quarter where Blackhawks established a lead of 21 points, which they extended to 30 by half time.  The third quarter was won by Aldworth by a single point before Woking re-established their superiority in the final quarter to run out victors by 82 – 34.  Full credit must be given to Aldworth for playing to the final whistle, with Kelly North putting in a strong performance throughout the game.  However, the MVP Award was given to Annabelle Hardiman from Woking for her good play throughout, combined with her coaching the Woking team.
