On the 27th November 2018, Southam travelled to Campion School for the Year 8’s first Basketball match of the season. Southam started very well but and showed promising signs but unfortunately couldn’t seem to hit the target as they went in behind (Southam 2-12 Campion) at the end of the first quarter.
In the second quarter Tom Cumberbatch and Oscar Wain came out strong and showed good technique on layups while Xian Lin battled brilliantly to win every rebounds in both D’s. At the Halfway stage Southam had court up and almost levelled (Southam 14-16 Campion).
After the half time interval Sam Hobson and Oscar continued the moment swing as Southam dominated the third quarter. Francis Chen got in on the scoring act with a shot from deep and an ecstatic celebration to match as Southam ahead (Southam 26-16 Campion).
The Final period was a tight nit affair as Campion fought hard to get back into the match and Xian and Callum Steward made some important interceptions and rebound to close out for a Southam 33-26 win.
Keep it up lads!
