Stonyhurst College have won the Basketball Final of the Under 19 Lancashire League.

They defeated Rossall School 57-46 at Blackburn College’s new Sports Facility.

The format of the Lancashire Schools Under 19 Basketball League is a round robin structure, with the top two teams playing-off in the final to decide the trophy.

After the game, the match officials awarded the Most Valuable Player trophy to David Uko, whose lightning-fast defence led to numerous steals and Rossall turnovers which, when combined with his 21 points on offence, was a key component to the Stonyhurst victory.

The Cup was presented to the Stonyhurst Captain, Carlos Casado.
