Saffron Hawks became Chelmsford Junior League District League Champions as they chalked up their 13th win out of 13 on Saturday.

They beat second-place Chelmsford 28-24 in a close game.

Player-of-the-match Charlotte Gramlick was excellentand Julia Beletki was very good under the post being aggressive with the rebounds. Mid-court players Chloe Starr, Emily Peggs, Gaelle Daneils and Katie Bear all worked hard to move the ball down court and to pressurise their attack, while Ruby Haralambous and Olivia Alltree gave the team plenty of options and scoring at a high rate.

The Hawks started brightly with a new attacking force of Maisie King and Ella Sanders. Both linked well giving good options for the mid-court players Hayley Irwin, Lauren Woosey and Mima Wellss. Poppy Phillips and Lauma Sarkane were very able in defence. The Hawks built up a good lead though the Flames came back with a flurry in the last 2 minutes the result was never in doubt.
