WBBL Championship

Caledonia Pride v Sevenoaks Suns

Pride welcomed reigning WBBL Championship winners Sevenoaks Suns to the Pleasance and it was a debut for American guard Taylor Edwards. The game started evenly, but the Suns were able to gradually build a 5 point lead by the end of Q1. The 2nd period was a tightly contested affair, with Suns extending their lead by just 1 point to make it 30-36 at halftime. Pride continued to show grit and determination in the 3rd period, but Suns once again extended their lead by just 1 point to 7 going into the final quarter, but a very strong showing by the champions in the final 10 minute saw them pull away to win 53-74.

Of note from this game, Sian Phillips played her 87th game for Pride, making her our all-time leader in appearances.
