Myerscough (1-1) and Charnwood (1-1) battled to what would appear to be a 22-all halftime scoreline, but Imogen Cook was found with a long inbounds pass and she beat the buzzer to give the Student Riders a 24-22 lead.

Rhiannon Watkins lifted Charnwood to its largest second half lead at 32-26 — Myerscough, however, rallied around an 8-2 run to carry a tie game into the fourth.

The lead then exchanged hands three times with Charnwood eventually edging into a 41-38 advantage, though Myerscough would score the final nine points of the game.

Megan Jones led Charnwood with 11 points in the loss.
