Year 8 Basketball Quarter final SJNCC V Rawlins Academy
Year 8 had a really close basketball match this week against Rawlins Academy
We arrived at Rawlins Academy and after a warm up of lay ups we launched into the game. The first 8 minutes saw some excellent defence from both teams with Sir Jonathan North Community College finishing 14 - 4 in the lead.
Leading by 10 points we swapped some players and started the second quarter. Their attackers drove through our defence and scored several times. We were drawing 18 all at half time.
With our adrenaline running high going into the third quarter Rawlins took control of the game especially with some silly errors made by Sir Jonathan North Community College and finished the quarter losing 29-20.
We still believed we could turn things around and went into the fourth quarter with some quick baskets. The game was end to end attacking and defending by both teams. We just missed out with the final score 30-31 to Rawlins.
Players: Mira, Emma B, Emma R, Eve, Asha, Zoya, Zoha, Carys, Angeline and Daniela
