It has been a successful year for this team with 14-W, 3-L & 1-D, finishing in #1 spot. A week off did them no favours in the finals, losing to Doncaster by 17pts in a lack-lustre game. To their credit, they put it behind them, winning well in semi-final against Latrobe to get their spot in the GF against Doncaster. While the game was close up to half-time, the boys came out with determination and good team work, with everyone putting in 100% to give them the win they truly deserved. They proved what their coach always believed they could be—“good basketballers”. Well done boys and coaches!
It was great to see so many other players, parents and coaches come down to watch and support them—it was truly appreciated. And thank you of course to team parents who drove to, scored and video taped (and photographed) the games—a fantastic group all around!
