Domestic Finals Week!
Congratulations to our Monday night winners of the U14, U16 & U18 boys' competitions.
In the U14s, Hoopla managed to leapfrog the other finalists to take on SSS in the grand final. However, SSS took control of the game early and maintained a lead throughout, taking the win 53 to 26. The game was played in great spirit and there were plenty of friends and family in attendance.
The U16s final was a similarly lop-sided result with the two top teams of the competition fighting it out. Mambas (pictured) were too strong on the night taking down a short-handed Wubba Lubba Dub Dub with a scoreline of 44 to 16. It was particularly pleasing to see so many other U16 teams coming along to spectate at the grand final, including players making the trek from Harrington and Taree to support their mates.
The U18s final was the most closely contested final of the night, which was expected given the final ladder had only 3 points separating the teams from 1st to 5th. Fittingly, the Final was a tight affair with minor premiers Old Mate holding the lead at every change. However, a 4th quarter comeback saw Los Pollos Hermanos eventually going on to win the game. A couple of late baskets inflated the score, which didn't reflect the closeness of the contest, which ended at 64 to 56.
