Under 11 basketball
On Thursday 28th March a team of 6 year 6 students attended the stevenage under 11 basketball competition. Over the course of the afternoon the team took part in a skills challenge and played in 5 group matches.
We got off to a slow start losing 4-0 to Giles our team didn't quite click properly during this match and found it hard to get going. However this proved to be our weakest performance in the tournament as we went on to play very well in later games. Our next game was against Peartree after thinking about the last game we realised where we went wrong and put in an excellent performance, coming out 6-0 winners. Our third game was against Codicote, this was an extremely close game with both teams playing brilliant basketball, unfortunately we conceded a late long range basket which meant we lost by only one basket! The team didn't let that discourage them and came out for the next game full of energy. We faced St Vincent De Paul, we went 6-0 up but unfortunately we gave away the lead and let them get it back to 6-6. This result seemed better at the end of the tournament as St Vincent De Paul actually went on to win the competition. Going into the last game, a place in the bronze medal playoffs was still up for grabs. In what proved to be our last game the team played very well and we came out 6-2 winners. The scoreline wasn't quite enough to get us into the bronze medal playoff though.
Overall another good outing for a Roebucks sports team, showing skill as well as great sportsmanship and teamwork. Very big well done to the children who took part!
