Captain Sophie Croft had a fantastic game in the shooting circle to claim the Most Valuable Player award in a 62-49 victory.

And that saw Cumberland move to 31 points, nine behind leaders Hucclecote, with a match a fourth-placed Linden up next on Sunday.

Coach Pollini Langi said: “Cumberland were clinical with their timing, strong drives and clever feeding in the attack.

“Shooters were on fire with 85 per cent accuracy, with the defence solid throughout the whole court, working together as a unit. This was a great team performance.”
