On the 27th September our under 16 and 19 girls basketball team travelled to CCA in Kilcoole to play their teams in two basketball matches. The U16s started by doing layup drills and a few sprints to warm up for the big game.
The game began and the David's girls got straight on the ball with two attempts from Grace McD. Two free shots were given to CCA with them scoring one. There was a lovely block made from Sarah McC stopping a CCA basket and Holly G took off up the court to have a shot on the basket. The girls were all over CCA, having many shots, but unfortunately no baskets yet. Lily E made a brilliant pass to Ella T who scored our 1st basket off the backboard. In less than two minutes, Ella T got our second basket after a quick pass from Holly G. Again, almost as soon as the ball was back on the court, Holly G scored. After a pass in from Raquel B on the backline Holly scored again. At the beginning of the third quarter, Casey H got an amazing shot of the backboard earning us another basket. Soon after there was another basket from Raquel B leaving David's in the lead 12-5. Unfortunately the CCA girls came in strong and got a few baskets leaving us in the lead at 11-12 with 5 seconds to go. Unluckily for the David's girls CCA got a killer basket right before the buzzer went, leaving the score 13-12 to CCA.
