SJL Under 14 Boys Div 3
Game 1 - The team started well and put a 3/4 man to man defence with a lot pressure to jump out to a 17 to nil in the first quarter. All 10 player used and same in the second quarter. The team has worked well in training and we’re doing it the same in their first game this weekend. In this game we pushed on with pressure man defence but found that the opposition was lacking, so in the 3rd quarter because of the score we had to pull back to halfway but that didn’t stop the score and we came away with a 60 plus win. Congratulations to the team who are working well with each other and all are contributing.
Game 2 - Played 2nd game against Merimbula who were a bigger team. They how ever were not a quick we also played a 3/4 man to man defence and managed to double team on a number of occasions to get good steels and baskets. Over all the team is playing well and all ten players are getting good game time and are sharing in another 50 point win. Game 3 is the test of what we have been training for the last couple of trainings.
Game 3 - This will be our hardest game against Moss Vale, they have a big player and we have trained the last week with a change in defence. We are playing in front of him and forcing him to move away from his norm. Well it seemed to work as we won by 19 pts and the whole team contributed and we had a good points spread.
Game 4 - Our. Last game for the weekend against Queanbeyan and it was running late and both teams were tired and had a hard weekend! We started well but was not as we were normally lead the first half by only 12 pts and making a lot of silly errors and come in to the big break. Needed to adjust our passing and get back to basics. The 3rd Qrt was better and the last we did some good defence and went ahead to take the game by 29 in the end. Over all a good result for the weekend. Congratulations to the team who all contributed.
