Southborough Shine at Basketball
The Southborough mixed Basketball team produced some of their best performance of the year against 16 very competitive schools. In our group we had Woodlands, Slade A and Hildenborough. After a very close game against Woodland where we drew 10-10 Southborough really started to move the ball with fluency. We had some fantastic shots from Louis, Max and Isabella which saw the team win against Hildenborough 9-1. In the toughest game of the day against Slade A we raised our game further only narrowly losing out 6-4 to a very strong team. As runners up in our group we played the runners up from the other three groups being Claremont, Speldhurst and Bishops Down.
The speed and intensity of these games increased with Hattie and Bella moving the ball brilliantly. Jenson used his strength to great effect scoring some excellent baskets against Bishops Down where we won 5-1. Against Speldhurst Louis and Piers opened the scoring and we kept the lead to a decisive 9-5 finish before playing finally Claremont. Claremont with a very strong team defended really well and despite opportunities from Nancy, Riley and Isabella, Claremont managed to win 6-0. The team played with great sportsmanship and can be proud of their performances in a very challenging competition.
