Basketball disappointment

Year 7/8 Basketball disappointment


Sadly, today the Y7/8 St Matthias Basketball Team crashed out in the regional final of Southwest group in the national Jr.NBA competition. School is immensely proud of the group, especially considering most of them hadn't played basketball prior to starting our school. To finish 2nd in the city league and 2nd in the regional of a national cup is a fantastic achievement.


The team were, unfortunately beaten by St. Peter's today who beat us in the city final a month prior. We lost 55-42.


St. Peter's took the lead in the first quarter 18-10.


Second quarter 25-15


Third quarter 33-18


Going into the last quarter we needed a lion's performance, and the group really did produce that. At one stage we were only behind 6 points. The opposition coach who runs Wolverhampton Slam basketball team praised our group and said that he saw a different side to them in the last quarter as they showed great desire to win.


Thank you to everyone who has supported our fantastic team this year.
