Quirindi’s under 12 girls and boys representative Basketball teams travelled to Maitland over the weekend to compete in the 2nd round of the Northern Junior League.
Despite both teams losing all their games contested over the weekend their respective coaches were impressed with their team’s efforts.
On the wrong end of some huge score-lines in round one the girls have managed to reduce the deficit in round two with a much improved defensive effort. Although going down to Tamworth, Coff’s Harbour and Gosford, Coach Sonja Taylor had nothing but praise for her young team. We are an inexperienced squad but the girls and keen and continue to put in the effort at training. We may be a long way off that win but as long as we show improvement each round we are heading in the right direction Taylor said.
Coach Matt Parsons was also happy with the under 12 boy’s results over the weekend. The Newcastle and Port Macquarie games blew out a little further than expected although the boys were competitive in their other two games losing to Tamworth 44 to 35 and Central Coast 44 to 40. If the boys can stay focused on the job at hand they are sure to put some wins on the board in round 3.
The competition is now in full swing and despite still having a few grading problems there have been some great games take place.
Our Mini-ballers under the guidance of Matt Parsons are going well. Being unable to drop rings on both ends of the court this season is a bit of an issue but we are sure there will be plenty of shots made by the end of the season.
The year 3-4-5 Competition has seen a few lopsided score lines with organisers still contemplating some team changes.
Emma Golland has really clicked this year and despite her Quirindi RSL team struggling to put points on the board at the moment Emma is still putting in 100% every time she takes to the court. Jasper Thistle, Brianna Clark and Maddyson Carter are also performing well for their respective teams.
The year 6-7 Division has also experienced some grading issues but those teams currently struggling are sure to improve and it won’t be long before they will be knocking on the door of some of those front runners.
Despite going down to Yogi’s Place by 19 points Bayliss Trading never gave up and yes they have a lot of work to do but the potential is there. Despite being in the losing team Emily Bramely top scored for the game with 10 points.
Patton Air Spray are still searching for their first win and although suffering another loss to the Tradies it was a much improved performance. Zane Nean and Lacie Quigley were very active for Patton’s whilst Liam Faulkner was Tradies best on the night with 9 points.
With the 3 point shot now removed from our local competition we saw some great basketball played in the year 8-9-10 Division this week. Tradies and Quirindi Plumbing put on a great display, it’s just a shame there weren’t more Parents there to witness this great spirited match. Jacob Fechner had a good night for the Tradies scoring 10 points whilst Kodee Allbon continues to impress with her all round game for Quirindi Plumbing.
Browning Motors were too strong on the night for B & R Refrigeration with Jamie Green steering his side to a convincing victory. Angie Grogan also deserving of a mention with some great carries and good option passes for B & R. Both teams are to be commended on the sportsmanship displayed during the game.
Quirindi Basketball would like to wish our Representative teams all the best in Lismore this coming weekend for round 3 of the Northern Junior League.

Unfortunately the 3 Point shot is being overused in our Local Junior Competition. This is a low percentage shot amongst the junior ranks and 9 times out of 10 no shooting technique is involved as the players just don’t have the physical strength to make the shot. To encourage players to get to the ring Quirindi Junior Basketball is removing the 3 point shot from our competition. Therefore any outside shot will only be counted as 2 points. In this instance it makes much more sense to get inside for a better option shot.
Under 14 Girls on the Board at Coff’s Although they had been training well under the guidance of Coach Zara Constable Quirindi’s under 14 Girls have surprised all taking their first win of the season and narrowly missing out in extra time at claiming a second in Coff’s Harbour over the weekend in Round 2 […]
