BasketballKWS 1 st BoysOn Monday night the KWS 1 st boy’s basketball came up againsttheir new found rivals, the Dark Sharks. Due to some unfortunatepasses and missed shots the Sharks took an early lead of 4 points.For the next two halves the 1 st ’s were playing catch-up only pullingahead in the third quatre. Despite losing Lucas in the secondquarter to an ankle injury the team stayed strong and at the start ofthe fourth quarter the boys pulled head of the now exhausted DarkSharks with the lead at 11 points. At the final buzzer the score was 36to 31 to Kinross. Great game boys a strong win against a strongopponent.KWS Girls 2nds v Pink Lightning lost 20 – 25Given the hiding we received from this experienced team in our previous match against them, wedid well to keep close to them for much of the game. For almost the last 15 minutes the matchhung precariously at 19 - 22 and we looked like scoring on numerous occasions. Rosie and Gretelhad dominant games, with both players being very assertive in general play. Annabelle and Aleishaplayed much tougher roles, unwilling to step back from the contest and concede possession.Arabella was confident in the air and was willing to take on her opponents. Abbie and Evie closedthe space and forced the Pinks to rush their passes. We hassled well is defense and got into goodspace in attack. Perhaps our passing and catching was a little wayward, allowing our opposition toslow down our play. We certainly did not lack confidence to shoot, however we would have likedto have been more accurate at crucial moments in the game.Patriots v CHS Lost 40-33Once again the Patriots played well but failed to convert opportunities in a game that was therefor the taking. Energy & enthusiasm were high with Will & Nick combining well till injury forcedWill off in the last quarter. Will was still the top point scorer on the night. Ahead at half time 18-16, the signs were very promising . Sam was everywhere & Jerry supported Duncan & Alister onmany attacking raids. Failure to clean up defensive rebounds allowed CHS to have up to 3 or 4shots on many occasions, which ultimately allowed them to get a solid lead . Free throws &accuracy of passing & shooting are areas for continued focus & were the point of difference in thegame. It would be remiss of myself not to mention Hillbilly’s 2 three pointers , which did lift theteam towards the end of the game. The win is not far away!Dangerous DinosaursAt 8 o’clock last night, the girls 1sts stepped on the court, ready to take on the DangerousDinosaurs for the third time. It turns out we weren’t quite as ready as we had thought, as westruggled to get going in the first and second quarter.The slow start didn’t put Niki off. She was the person that everyone relied on to make thingshappen when the score was close, and she accepted the challenge gallantly, top-scoring with 10points.Sarah Burns was second top points scorer on 7 points. She had a strong game, especially in the keywhere her height worked to her advantage.Megan and Pip played a good game, along with Katie and little Sarah.We defeated the Dinosaurs 27-21.Good job girls, next week we will aim to get off with a stronger start to the game.The Girls 1 st ‘s defeated the Dangerous Dinosaurs 27-21 in a friendly game of hard basketball.Over the last few weeks, KWS junior girls have been playing brilliantly in the town competition.Each Individual has improved considerably and they are all to be commended on their efforts.
