Crossroads On Track

The Crossroads women’s basketball team are determined to win the Rai­waqa Interlane Basketball Easter competition.

The Peniasi Kainamoli coached- side are currently leading the points table after defeating Browning, St Pius and Davui at Ed’s Court in Raiwaqa yesterday.

Kainamoli said after returning from a local tournament his side had to regroup again to prepare for the Easter competi­tion.

“I’m happy with the women’s perfor­mance and we are not taking any team for granted,” he said.

“It took us three weeks to prepare for the tournament since we had just returned from a local competition.

“We’ve a young side but players have shown a lot of potential. I have advised them not to take any game lightly because each game will determine whether they will qualify for the championship. So they should not underestimate any team.”

Kainamoli said such tournaments would help build-up young players to become pro­fessionals in the sport.

The quarterfinal is set for Saturday and have teams like Davui and Spowart vying for a place to qualify for the National Bas­ketball Championship.

Results: (Women) Crossroads 40–20 Browning, St Pius 8–32 Davui, St Pius 17 – 31Spowart, Davui 14 – 62 Crossroads
