Final week of Sports fixtures at Kent College for 2016/17

Monday 14th

U12 Boys travelled to EIS Jumeirah for their final playoff games

Results

Kent vs BPA = Kent won 10 - 8

Kent vs EISJ = Kent Lost 24 - 7

The boys got a tough lesson in how to keep possession and how to be clinical in shooting when presented with an opportunity. EISJ were very drilled and confident on the ball and we lacked the precision in passing that was needed to get to the basketball more often than we did.

Tuesday 15th

U12 Girls travelled to Nord Anglia for their final playoff game

Result

Kent vs Nord Anglia = Kent lost 20 - 4

This was definitely a game that needed to be watched, as the scoreline does not do the girls justice. Their defense was much more together and the girls we getting more opportunities to shoot than in previous weeks. This bodes well for next years leagues and with more exposure to the game, the girls will become more confident.

Wednesday 16th

U14 Boys travelled to JBS for their final playoff games

Results

Kent vs CIS = Kent won 10 - 8

Kent vs JBS = Kent Lost 9 - 2

Two very closely fought games against equally talented opposing teams. Our boys defended incredibly well but we just had one of those days when we couldn't score. I really hope this team have learnt from their first season as for some of them they will be playing in the U16 team in the first term back.

Wednesday 17th

U14 Girls travelled to DBS for their final playoff games

Results

Kent vs AAA = Kent Lost 11 - 10

Kent vs DBS = Kent Lost 25 - 9

We went to this fixture with 6 players as the year 9 players were out on a trip. The first game we should have won. The girls were 8 points ahead going into the last 5 minutes and then unfortunately made too many mistakes and allowed the other team to capitalise. The game against DBS was a one team game. They were very confident ball players and I question how they managed to be in one of the bottom playoff games, as they had 4 very competent basketball players that made light work of our team.

Our goal this year was simply to compete and learn from the experience. We had some great performances throughout the 4 teams and I really feel we learnt a lot about each other and have a much to be proud of.
