Girls Basketball A Team - 22nd October
Basketball Thursday the 22nd of October was the Girls ‘A’ team basketball game. They played Kenakena. Everybody knew it was going to be a hard game because in the netball finals Kenakena bet our ‘A’ girls netball team.
“Everybody on court” Mr Vaughan yelled out. All the girls had a smug look on their faces. This game was going to get brutal. ‘Phewww’, the whistle blew. Nikitah and the huge tall Kenakena player both went up in the air. The Kenakena player smacked the ball over to their good player. She went to lay it up but missed. “Yusss” the KPS girls were thinking.
One of the KPS girls rebounded it and dribbled it down to our end. She missed too. “Damn” they probably were thinking. Throughout the game there were heaps of fouls that didn’t get pulled up, heaps of 3 second keyholes, not blaming anyone *cough* *cough* ‘Mr Vaughan’.
The game was starting to get tight and all the girls were getting frustrated waiting for the whistle to blow. Goal after goal, the girls lost track of the score. 10,9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1 “PHEWWWW” the whistle blew. All the girls were wandering what the score was. “20 all” Ms Williams said. “Wow I thought we had lost” Hayley said.
They did their three cheers and shook Kenakena’s hands. You could tell that both of the teams were out to get each other bythe looks they had on their faces before and after the game. They muscled up to the Kenakena players and put up a hell of a fight. Well done girls, you make KPS proud.
