On Saturday, the Girls A Basketball Team travelled to Country Garden to play in the last tournament of the season, the Division 1 PRC Basketball Tournament.
We played Country Garden in the first game, which we dominated and won 18-4. The second game was against ISD who we had beaten before, but were a tough team. We ended up beating them 27-12. This meant we had come 1st in our pool. We then played against 2nd in the other pool to see who would go to the finals. This was against QSIS. We had not played them before, so we were a little nervous, but we ended up winning this game 20-0. This meant we were facing ISD again in the final.
We started off badly giving away 3 baskets and ISD took the lead. We were nervous and it showed in our game, we couldn’t seem to shoot the ball in the net. Candy scored some good lay ups to get the score to 4-6. ISD scored again. We were having trouble defending against one of their players who was so tall and if she got the ball she would always get it in the net. The game continued in this way and we got a little frustrated as we could not get the same momentum as in previous games. We ended up losing the game by 2 points. We were very disappointed to lose a game against a team we had already beaten twice before. But ISD upped their game in the final and we could not match it.
Overall a very successful tournament for us and we came 2nd place. Well done to Candy, Coco, Leiah, Angel, Caitlyn, Karina, Tracy, Liz and Rachel.
