Year 5/6 South Zone Basketball: Our Boys and Girls Year 5/6 Basketball teams competed against Thorrington in the South Zone Basketball Tournament today. Both games were very close and Hillview showed great staying power to win through in both contests.
The girls were behind 12-8 at half time but proved too strong in the second half to win 22-18, winning the second spell 14-6. Players of the Day were Micahlei Timo and Ropeta Mene-Vaele for strong defence and causing turn-overs.
The boys came up against a taller and older Thorrington team but also finished stronger to win 16-6 in a close tussle where the ball didn’t often find the basket. Players of the Day were Noah Dean and Archie Nielsen – Noah for constant attacks and Archie for great marking and defence.
Thanks to Marita Stocks (girls) and Mr Dowall (boys) for taking the teams and to James Onslow for refereeing.
The teams have now qualified for the Primary Sports Canterbury Indoor Tournament at Pioneer Stadium on Monday 12 August.
Girls: Hillview 22 Thorrington 18
