U14 B Girls Match Report - 7th Place
Haley Nguyen provides the match highlights:
Last Thursday the U14 B girls team left for their SISAC basketball tournament. The girls came to the city champs with high energy and were ready to face their competitors and determined to win. We were very nervous as we were starting our first match against TAS but played the game with a lot of enthusiasm. However, we were not able to beat them, therefore the score was 14-6 to TAS.
After that match, we all took a 45 minute rest to recover for the next 3 consecutive matches. EIS was our next competition. In our first half they were winning by 6-0 which did not affect our play in the second half but unfortunately, we were not able to have a win. Right after, we went up against RISS, who were one of the strongest teams there and ended up being the overall champions. Although we knew that they were a powerful team, we did not let that discourage us with a steady first half leading by one point which boosted our motivation as we knew they were a tough team to beat. Sadly, they overturned it leading by 9 points and the final score being 11-2. Despite this, Ms Gallagher and Mr Tuan were still proud of our game against RISS because our performance had improved drastically from our first match. Ms Gallagher said to us, “let’s end with a high” and using those words we came into our next match with our heads held high and beat our opponents, AMIS, with the score of 14-4. As a result, we ended up coming 7th out of 8 teams. This wasn't the outcome we wanted but were still happy with the effort and hard work we put into all of our matches.
