MK5D Shenley Brook End claim CBL playoff final – recap & highlights

MK5D Shenley Brook End secured the first playoff title in CBL history as they beat Bracknell & Wokingham College 98-91.

The #1 seeds completed a perfect campaign after an unbeaten regular season and three playoff wins, racing out of the gate with a 33-17 opening quarter to lead almost from tip to buzzer.

That opening frame left Bracknell & Wokingham with a mountain to claim, and their deficit would only fall to single digits during a late fourth quarter push.

MVP honours went to MK5D captain William Issekya, who closed with 25 points, five assists and three boards, dropping 14 of those points during the important first quarter burst.

The eventual champs would also get 16 points from Robertas Barkauskas and a 14 point, 11 assists double-double from Eric Arriaga.

Myers Amoo-Gottfried led all scorers with 27 points in defeat, whilst Gabriel Romero-Sanz (22pts, 8reb, 8ast) flirted with a triple-double, but neither wouldn’t be enough to get Bracknell & Wokingham back into the game.
