Maryborough Basketball to host its grand finals
MARYBOROUGH Basketball will host its A-grade grand finals on Saturday night.
The women's A-grade and men's A-grade finals will be played at the Ray and Elva Alloway Basketball Complex, at the corner of Ariadne and Frank Sts.
Elva Alloway sent in this report from the preliminary finals:
A convincing 40 points win by Zodiacs over All Stars in the Womens A grade basketball preliminary final will see Zodiacs in action again in the grand Final against Bouncers.
With the first quarter tied up at 10-all it looked as if we had a game on our hands.
Unfortunately for All Stars, the wheels began to fall off from then on.
Their passing game ,which is normally a high light of their team work let them down with too many errors, giving Zodiacs an opportunity to snap up the loose ball and going onto score points.
They were also outclassed in the shooting department, with their normally safe shooters in Nshanra Kingston and Emily Roberts having trouble sinking their shots.
It was a different story for Zodiacs however with all players contributing to the game.
Zodiacs defence was hard to penertrate, with pressure applied on the ball in all areas of the court.
Braxton Sheppard hit 18 points, sharing the top scoring with Sherryn Caarmichael, while Hananh Carmichael hit 12 points for Zodiacs.
For All Stars, the top scorers were Nhhara Kingston with nine points, and Emily Roberts with six.
Final Score: 64-24
