BASKETBALL

BONUS PASTOR BASKETBALL FESTIVAL

Thursday 11th December 2019

SO NEAR, YET SO FAR

On Thursday, our year 6 basketball team travelled to Bonus Pastor to compete in a basketball festival. After going 6 points down in their first match, our team roared back by scoring eight baskets without reply to beat St Augustine's by 16 points to 6. Our team followed this with a narrow 6 - 4 victory over St Philip Neri.

 

Going into their final game against St Winifred's, our team knew that a draw would be enough to win the competition. However, although we had many chances to win the match, we didn't not have the accuracy necessary to turn chances into points and lost this last game by one basket. As a result, Downderry finished as runners-up, missing out on top spot by just 2 points! 

 

Although we did not win, the effort and support shown by the whole team was wonderful: Mustafa, Anshika, Narayan and Olivia were disciplined and solid in defence; Aaron, Caleb, Malik and Aysha were skilful in attack. A special mention must go to Victoria who was our top scorer with 12 points. Well done to the whole team.
