Last night (14 September 2016), some of our basketball teams played in their finals for the local basketball league run by Tauranga City Basketball.
The Junior Girls, Junior A Boys and Senior B Boys played fantastic games with close scoring the whole way through.
The Junior A Boys, coached by Willow Wilson, came up against local rivals, Tauranga Boys College Junior A in the A Division. These two teams are so evenly pegged and the game was fantastic to watch with great skills being displayed in both teams. The MMC Boys lead for the majority of the game but were just overtaken near the end with a score difference of only 5 points, leaving the team to finish in Silver Medal position. Congratulations Team.
At the Junior Boys Prizegiving, the Tournament Five were named, with both Shalom Broughton and Ralph Sanchez being selected. Congratulations to these two boys.
The Senior B Boys then played their final in the B Division against Tauranga Boys C. The MMC Boys played exceptionally well with some great skill being displayed and obvious improvement in the team. The boys have won nearly every game in the tournament and finished it off by winning their final game by 4 points earning them a well deserved Gold Medal placing.
The Junior Girls team also had a fantastic game and finished in bronze medal position for the season.
Well done to all the teams and good luck to the Senior A Boys who finish their season next week.
