Queen Ethelburga’s 84 – 89 Nottingham Academy

Queen Ethelburga’s hosted Nottingham Academy in their final regular season home game in the ABL North Monday night.

The visitors would gain a sizeable early lead behind a 9-0 run which had QE chasing throughout the rest of the half. A back and forth encounter would see Nottingham run out eventual 89-84 winners behind a great team performance.

“I’m really proud of the boys and the fight they showed throughout the game”, said QE coach Josh Metcalf. “Both fixtures against Nottingham have been tremendously competitive and have been a great endorsement of the league this season”.

Latrell Davis led all scorers with 40 points while Nottingham were led by P. Palmer who finished with 18 points.

Nottingham will look to finish their season strong when they come up against Leeds this Wednesday whereas QE travel to Loughborough in their final game.
