The Quirindi Friday Night Junior Basketball Competition has wrapped up with the Coffee Pot defeating B & R Refrigeration in the year 8,9,10 Division 36 points to 33. Despite a flurry of baskets late in the game B & R Refrigeration just couldn’t bridge the gap after The Coffee Pot had gained a comfortable lead early in the second half. The game was played in good spirit with all players contributing to their team’s performance.
Bayliss Trading put together one of their best performances of the season to take the year 6,7 Division Title over Yogi’s Place 49 points to 17. Despite being down by 13 points at the break Yogi’s Place must be given credit for their never give up attitude, competing till the end. Bayliss’s passing game was pretty to watch and proved the difference with plenty of open shots created by their ball movement.
It was an action packed game in the year 3,4,5 Division with McGuckin’s Transport defeating the Tradies 20 points to 14. The year 3,4,5 Division has been a pretty hotly contested competition this season with plenty of newcomers taking to the court. All teams are to be commended or their sportsmanship throughout the year. “We may have lost but we still had fun” Losing Coach Sonja Taylor’s team realising what’s important.
Although our Mini Ballers were slightly down on numbers this year they have also progressed well enjoying their first season. There has been some great little games at the Recreation Centre this season and a big thanks to Mick Clark and Matt Parsons for steering them around the court.
Terry’s Tip: Please Remember Basketball is a team sport. Often I hear players, and sometime their parents, putting too much emphasis on scoring Baskets. If someone is down the court unmarked then they are in a better position than you, pitch the ball ahead. A good pass, steal, block or boxing out your opponent is just as, if not more important than making that basket. After all, DEFENCE WINS GAMES.
