Late drama denies team District title
A late basket from Bishops in our final game meant the basketball team narrowly missed out on winning the District Finals this week at St John Payne School.
The squad actually started with a 2-1 win over eventual champions Lawford Mead thanks to score from Alex and Ronnell. In our next match, it needed a score in the final minute from Nana to ensure we drew 4-4 with Beehive Lane. Despite leading 2-1 in our last match, we eventually lost 3-2 which meant we slipped from first to third place overall. The squad was made up of Alex, Jake, Nana, Jeremiah, James, Daisy, Amelie S, Leah, Arabella and Maisie.
"I liked how we spaced out and whenever we scored we kept pressing," said Maisie.
"I was pleased that we all worked as a team and nobody was too disappointed if we drew or lost," added Amelie.
