Comment: Monday saw the year 9 team play a 6-a-side tournament with teams from the local premier league. Considering the team were playing teams from the league above they gave a really good account of themselves. They never gave up and grew into the tournament the more games that they played. The team learnt a lot in which they will be able to take into their upcoming fixtures.

Comment: A very solid first game of the season, whilst implementing a new method of defending they boys held to opposition to just a few baskets. Now the aim will be to improve our own scoring for future games against what is inevitably going to be much stronger opposition.

Y8 Boys v Grange Academy (District League) AWAY Mr Cartledge

Result : Lost 18-6
Scorers : J Gladdy 4, M Tregear 2

Commended performances : J Gladdy
Comment: It was tough first competitive basketball experience for the year 8 boys who came up against a Grange team containing 2 or 3 much stronger, taller and more physical players. However the boys worked hard on defence and by the second half started to show a greater understanding of offence in a game situation. With improved shooting the game would have been closer. The boys will have learned a lot about the structure of competitive basketball and hopefully with more practice will show improvement for the next match.

GIRLS BASKETBALL – Yr8/9 Friendly v Queens AWAY Mr Harris
Date : Wednesday 12th January 2022
Result : Lost 26-14
Squad : A.Abraham, N.Donald, L.Wheaton, A.Choudhry, I.Palan, L.Qarib, M.Bazile, H.Kyei
Commended performances :
Comment: This was the first basketball match for the girls against a strong Queens side. The first quarter was a close contest, with each team only scoring one basket each. The second quarter, we were able to create more space on the court and started to create a number of chances where the second quarter finished 4 – 4. In the second half, the game opened up a little bit more and we took an early lead with a number of consecutive baskets. However, Queens started a fight back in the final quarter where the game finished 26 – 14. The girls acquitted themselves really well against a Queens team who had clearly been playing together for some time.
