4.2.15 South Birmingham Basketball Final

4.2.15 South Birmingham Basketball Final

Looking to Three-peat; Hollywood, faced an uphill task and their hardest competition to date.

To win, Hollywood would would have to go through the runners up and winners of the Kings Norton League in the 3 aside spectacular. In the first game against West Heath, the team started well and kept the scores tight, but found behind through out the game and 10-12 at the start of the 4th quarter. In a physical final quarter Hollywood managed to score 4 baskets without reply winning 18-12.

In the final, Hollywood faced St Lawrence in an even more physical game with a simillar pattern to to the first, never leading in the game and always playing catch up.  It looked like an impossible task at 10-16 down; but again going to overdrive the time scored 4 unanswered baskets, the last being for a foul and won the title 18-16.

An awesome effort and great practise for the tough games ahead in the Birmingham Finals. Well done team.

A new event for the partnership and Hollywood were one of 3 schools looking to take the crown as inaugural champions.

A training session to start with showed how strong the opposition would be in this new event, but the team made up of Y5 and Y6 children adapted during the competition and became more aware of tactics. Henry and Kier scored our only goals in some very close games, but 4 defeats meant we finished 3rd, with Anthony, Amy and James collecting awards for determination.

19.1.15 Netball vs St Bernards

19.1.15 Netball vs St Bernards

Hit by injury and unavailability, a minimum team of 5 took on an undefeated St Bernards as the night drew in.

 The game started well and Hollywood had the first few shots at the St Bernards basket, but unfortunately missed. Although the passing and movement of Hollywood was good for their first game together, the rapidly closing darkness made shooting even more difficult; but St Bernards shots were like magnets. Amy got our only basket.

The game finished 1-13 to St Bernards, but the game was much closer than the score.

Team – Amy C (1), Miya B, Lucy H, Kirusaan V
