Up against a more experienced team from Campion, our Yr 9 Basketball team were up against it from the start. Campion had a couple of high quality players, including one outstanding individual who accounted for over half of their points. Not unexpectedly for a team that hasn’t practiced or played together regularly, we struggled at the start, but by the second half our performance levels had significantly improved and we started to peg back Campion’s early advantage. Some effective defence and dangerous fast breaks were our key weapons as the game stretched. All players contributed, many with points, and though we fell short at the end, our performance showed promise for future games.
Final score – Campion 38 – 22 Southam
