WBBL play-offs: London Lions beat Sevenoaks Suns to land clean sweep of titles

The London Lions defeated the Seven Oaks Suns 70-45 in the WBBL final for all four titles this season.

Shanice Beckford-Norton had 15 points, Kennedy Leonard 13 and Holly Winterburn 12, while five Lions players scored in double digits.

Seven Oaks, led by 13 points by Janice Monakana, were with just 20 points in the second half despite being on the line at the break.

The Lions, built to compete in Europe, have won all 34 domestic games this season – averaging 40 points.

The Suns, who have lost to Lions twice this season in single-digit numbers, started fast and won the first quarter 12-7, but London had to get ahead quickly and pick three Ford-Norton Bakers. Favorites bring some speed.

The Lions opened the second half 10-3 with a 12-point lead, but the Swans found a way back in the game, just 44-38 behind at the end of the third quarter.

However, they failed to score for about 5 minutes in the final quarter, but saw Leonard shoot a 3-pointer to lift the Lions to a 20-point lead in the game and turn them into a clean sheet.

Leonard, who won the Actress of the Year award despite playing in a protective mask, said after examining herself three days before breaking the mask. Even in education.

“The sweat mask was annoying – but it took Mark 12 hours to get it and another 12 hours to get it back,” she said. “It shows you what he did for the team.”

Suns captain Cat Carr said: “London had a very, very good year. We had a hard time spending 40 minutes together. We ran 19 laps and that’s why we struggled.”
