Up against HollyField’s Year 10 B Team Canbury’s combined Seniors failed to make much headway – but there was plenty to cheer about in a match that was played in excellent spirits. True – HollyField never looked under any pressure – and their regular training sessions and matches in both the Kingston & Surrey Schools’ Leagues meant they had a much better understanding of what they were meant to be doing.
I will post a better analysis – as soon as I can – in the mean time here are the team before the start…. and one of the many photos taken by Angus during the match.
Well done HollyField – a very competent performance – from Canbury’s point of view it was just as well that Turkay scored the 20 points that he did. He was supported by a late run of points from Pouya (7 pts) and a 3 pointer from James, and a single basket from the free throw line from Kiya. I have to say that for our 1st game of the winter, this was not a bad effort – but let’s be realistic – against a good well disciplined side we must be better prepared in the future – instead of heading downtown to “Subway” Yr 11s would do better to bring in a sandwich and shoot some baskets at lunchtime… Starting MONDAY 7th Senior Inter House Basketball Campbell v Johnson 13 05 start.
I hope the team may have learnt a few things from this game: 1. Lack of practise sure doesn’t make for much skill and accuracy when needed in game situations 2. passing is often much better and more effective than dribbling 3. coach needs to try and get us more matches!
