After a close game last week, the boys were ready to play hard and try to get a win on the board.
They welcomed back Ari and Axel after a few games off and were glad to have their defence skills again.
The opponents had some strong players who scored early and were able to continually push through Corowa’s defence. Their layups and rebounds were hurting the boys early in the match.
James managed to hit a few long-range shots in the first half to open the lead, and with Jack’s continued pressure on defence, the game started to turn in Corowa’s favour.
Finn was able to draw several fouls and convert the free throws into valued points. Axel was relentless in his pressure on the other team and continued to get turnovers.
By the end of the match, Jack top scored with a season high of 10 points, Finn on 7 and Ari and James both scoring 6 each. A great win by the team with the final score being 35-13
Under 14s Leopards
The boys faced off against the Eagles this week looking for a win to consolidate their top-of-the-ladder position.
Oscar Rowe got the Leopards going on the scoreboard and was having a great game early on at both ends of the court.
Charlie had the key defensive assignment again this week on the Eagle’s key playmaker and scorer and was holding his own against him.
It was a tightly contested first half with the scoreline of 12-7 in our favour at halftime. The Eagles were disrupting the offensive play, and the Leopards were doing the same to them at the other end of the court.
After half time the boys brought their fast break game out and split the Eagle’s defence with some quick plays which resulted in multiple scores. Oscar continued to dominate the game and would go on to post an equal game high of 12 points with Will Forrest who was on the end of some great passing from Logan and Josh Hunter to score some strong layups.
Josh Hunter really impressed this week with his team first passing to players in good spots for an uncontested shot. The Eagles tried to be physical however the Corowa boys wouldn’t be intimidated and focused on putting the points on the scoreboard leading to a 35-19 win.
