The Under-14 Basketball League is now under way, and the Angels are hoping to do well this season. They are training hard and playing harder! The story so far…
26 January: Thorpe St Andrew
We had a slow start to this game, and our passing and shooting let us down a little in the first quarter. However, Rosie began scoring frequently and Rio rebounded well to increase our tally of baskets. The whole team toughened up, and were all playing well by the second half. Some important defending by Katie stopped Thorpe’s best player from doing too much damage. The final score was a 32-12 win for us.
Angel of the Match: Rio Topley
1 February: Sprowston
We started the game strongly, and played with confidence. New players to the team all played well. Rosie was unstoppable, scoring 28 points! We won the game quite convincingly, 61-13.
Angel of the Match: Rosie Beel
6 February: Notre Dame As always, Notre Dame proved tough opposition, and it was a very close game. Every time we got a few points ahead, they came back at us. We defended brilliantly, and finally managed to pull away in the last quarter. It was a tough game throughout, but we won 33-26. Rosie scored 10 points, Rio scored 10, mainly through excellent rebounding; Jess was successful with some strong drives to basket, scoring 8; Katie scored 2, and Francesca 3.
Angel of the Match: Jess Clegg for brilliant defence!
