Congratulations need to go to Remuera Intermediate and Howick Intermediate Open Grade Boys who fought out one of the closest contested Eastern Zone Finals in memory when a 12-all draw was won by Howick who had scored early in the first half. Pakuranga defeated Tamaki Intermediate in the 3rd/4th play off. We are working out way through the highlights, and will begin the first post of these on Friday.
Tonight out Girls took on the undefeated BBI Girls Basketball. BBI proved why they are one of the favourites to win the league in a devastating first half they took an amazing 38-6 lead. Tamaki were able to control things better in the second half with the final score being 54-16. Tamaki's leading scorer of the year Lasini was shut down by impressive BBI defence who managed to restrict her to 4 points. Maggie scored 6, Patricia 4 and Meliame scored her first basket of 2008. The team will be looking back to bounce back with a game against Sylvia Park 'A' team next week.
