U19 ISNC Final Results
Congratulations to The Grammar School at Leeds who won 59-55 against Millfield to become the U19 Smile ISNC 2018 Champions!
The second match of the day was a replay of last years U19 final, Millfield School v The Leeds Grammar School with Leeds looking for their 3rd U19 Cup in a row! The game started at a frenetic pace but structured play from Leeds saw them finish the quarter with a 15-9 lead. Improvement in Millfield’s midcourt spacing lead to a closing of the gap to 4 but this seemed to only motivate Leeds who then upped their game and pulled away again finishing the first halt 26-20 up. The 3rd quarter saw Millfield’s defensive pairing have a big impact, as they split the circle and caused confusion to the space, finishing 39-37 going into the last quarter. The quarter started with nerves preventing the movement of both teams, then due to blood the Leeds GD had to leave the court, leaving Leeds with only 6 players, Millfield seemed to sense this was their opportunity to grab the lead, their GS shot with great confidence and the game finished on a tie! Extra time saw Leeds return to their strong structures and Millfield seemed out of ideas on the counter, a great effort from both teams that saw Leeds win by 4 in extra time and claiming their 3rd Smile ISNC U19 Cup title in a row!
