Sandwell Basketball Competition

We brought two teams over to Oldbury Academy for an action packed morning of basketball. There were 14 teams there, including two of our own, sporting our brand new impressive looking kit! The games came thick and fast in order to accommodate two groups of 7 teams, with all teams playing six group matches. Our A team won one, drew three and lost two to finish fourth in their group. Our B team won five and lost one to top their group. This meant that our two teams had to play each other in the quarter finals. In a close game, our B team shaded it. They then went on to beat Lyng in the semi-final and play Moat Farm in the final. This was an exciting, close game. We looked like we would edge it for a while until they equalised near the end. Extra time still couldn’t separate the teams so we had to take sudden-death free-throws to decide the winner. Unfortunately, Moat Farm won the shoot-out. However, our children were fantastic all morning and did extremely well to both qualify for the knock-out stages, then for one team to make the final. Well done everyone!
