Valence Basketball Teams Played with Style
On the 16th May last, our three basketball teams proudly competed in the 3 x 3 basketball competition at Eastbury Comprehensive school.
Valence Hurricanes raced into a 4 - 0 lead against St Teresa Sparks before conceding 3 baskets consecutively to lose on a scoreline of 6 - 4.
Our Hurricanes recovered after defeat to beat Southwood Raptors respectively, before beating Manor Longbridge in a scoreline of 14 - 4, finishing second in their group.
Our Valence Mavericks team beat George Carey Badgers in an 8-2 scoreline in their first game, however it was the strength and fantastic skill of St Teresa Blues who again beat Valence with an 8 - 2 reserve scoreline.
We recovered again after defeat with wonderful skill and determination to beat Ripple Charges in an incredible 22 - 4 scoreline in our final game to also finish second in our group.
Our third Valence team, Valence Saints played 4 games in their group, beating Southwood Vipers and St Peters Flames respectively and lost to St Teresa Hammers and Ripple Storm to finish 3rd in a group of five teams. The teams who finished first advanced to the semi-finals.
Well done to our basketball teams, competing at a high level of basketball. Our future looks bright and we look forward to competing again next year, hoping we will go the extra mile and reach the London finals.
