It was a tough 60-minute match, with Cumberland needing to fight until the end to win 42 – 36.

Coach Pollini said: “Essex were competitive all the way.

“The Cumberland girls dug deep in the second half forcing turnovers and converting some brilliant shots.”

The most valuable player (MVP) award went to England under-19 international Kira Rothwell who had a blinder at GA.

The win means Cumberland are currently third on the table with 20 points in Premier League 2.

Cumberland’s next game is against Ryland at home on Sunday (10.30am) at City University Sport The Franklin Building.
