U15 Invitational Games " The League of Champions"

Renovation-and-refit-projects

Nerves and excitement were creating a great atmosphere as the players from 107, Garden, Tara Pattana and Team GV left their school allegiances at the gate and picked up new jerseys ready to compete in the inaugural League of Champions.

In the girls basketball the USA came flying out of the gate, GV's Cherry proving too much for the Australian's despite standout performances from Opal and Eva. France flattered to deceive with Valentina racking up the points for them but they couldn't hold onto leads and it left them without a win. Spain gelled instantly with some superb teamwork and GV's Emi and Fa linked up perfectly with 107's Pleng and Kati. The title decider was fittingly the last game between Spain and USA. It was a close contest but Spain had the drive to push over the line and Fa's crucial jumpshot helped pull the score from USAs reach.

In the boys football again the story was the teams that were able to come together and form links quickly were the most successful. Barcelona recorded early wins over Dortmund and Inter Milan, Arrin playing the holding midfield role superbly well, breaking up play but also able to spray long balls to open players going forward. It was Inter and Ajax who played out the game of the day- a thrilling 4-4 draw!!! Ultimately the Hand 2 Hand Panathinaikos team took the gold medal, the slightly older boys making the difference for them.

The girls football was played out between Brazil and Holland. Superb performance's from GV's Ginevra swung the game for Brazil but Holland certainly battled well, fittingly actual Dutch player Eva was their star!

The boys basketball was played in a fantastic spirit and the standard on display was very high. There were some great individual performances for example 107's Tommy for the Lakers, Garden's Yash for the Celtics, Yanick for the Heat but the teams who fared best were the teams who played as a unit and the New York Knicks and the Chicago Bulls exemplified that. They met in the final under the lights as the evening drew on but unfortunatley, despite some great basketball the Bulls couldn't find their scoring touch. Wes didn't have such problems and led his team to victory. In a phrase that hasn't been used for a very long time, New York Knicks were the champions!

Thanks as always to the parents for their support, the coaches who had to strategise and motivate teams they haven't coached before and a big thanks to John from Year 12 who refereed all day and did an excellent job.

Well done to all of the players who will have learnt so much about teamwork and have hopefully made lots of new friends this weekend - Martin Dusting.
