Tamaki Int. - Basketball August 8th

Could it be that two years of work is nearly over? Well its true the Tamaki Intermediate Girls Basketball team have only two games remaining of their regular Thursday night season. This, as well as large amount of fund-raising has been building towards the nationals which are now only a month away! In our last pool game we took one of the red hot favourites for the 2008 Eastern Zone title Bucklands Beach Intermediate. They were beaten in the final 9-8 by Tamaki last year, and have already been runners up in Netball. Last game a huge first half by BBI saw them take an enormous 39-4 lead. This time Tamaki's defence was much more solid and the half time score was only 12-22. The final score was 21-40 to BBI but Tamaki made a huge improvement. Lasini managed to top score with 12 points, Meliame backed her up with 7 but the defence from Angel and Meliame in particular defended superbly for extended period! It bodes well for the Eastern Zone finals as Tamaki attempts to defend their title on August 20th...

Hi girls,

I saw that game, well done. It's great to see you turning your awesome talents to Basketball Meliame. Good luck for Tauranga, I'll look forward to hearing how you go.

Keep training hard, have you been watching the Olympics Basketball Team? That could be some of you in the future!
