On Thursday 16th January, 2 teams from Year 5 went to Temple Park to play in the Hoops for Health basketball tournament.


Team 1 won four out of their five games. The first game was 16 – 0, the second was 8 – 0, the third 3 – 1, match four 10 -0 and the final match we lost 3 – 1.


Team 2 won 3, lost one and drew one.  The first game was 5 – 0, the second was 2 – 1 to the other team, the third 4 – 0, match four 2 – 2 and the final match we won 4 – 1.


Both teams got through to the quarter finals for coming second in our groups.  Unfortunately, we had to play each other in this match and Team 1 won 2 – 1.  This means that Team 1 have made it through to the Grand Finals which will be played at the Newcastle Eagles Community Arena on Friday the 7th February.  We will play in the semi-finals before the Eagles match and then if we get through to the final, that will be played at half time in the Eagles match.


We had a great day and everyone played extremely well and showed good sportsmanship.
