Year 11 Basketball

The year 11 basketball team traveled away to Plymstock for the second fixture of the season for what was expected to be an extremely tough game. We were unfortunate with illness meaning Fernando, Taylor, Macks, Fraser and Kyle were all unavailable. The tough game expected was exactly what we got with them having several club players to opening exchanges went in their favour, however we started to convert on their mistakes making few of our own.

By the end of the third quarter the game was tied, in fact even with two minute to go in the fourth all was still tied. However an amazing steal from Bruno to Bradley Wilson to Olly for a basket and Olly for an incredible take from Tylor Lawley and lay-up finished them off. We ran out winners 32-28 in a fantastic win which was played in a lovely spirit.

The year 10 students stepped up covering for illness and doing an amazing job for the team. Danny in the first half hitting his shots, Alfie and Bradley running the point, Tom and Charlie picking up steals and rebounds all over the place, thank you and well done.
