Report: Premier Basketball team vs Rosmini College
The end of the Premier Basketball team’s regular season concluded on Thursday 25 August with the Premier SuperCity competition final against Rosmini College.
Played at Eventfinda Stadium on the North Shore, both teams displayed an impressive defensive effort through the first two quarters, and it was Rosmini who took the early advantage to lead 31-22 at half-time.
Through considerable determination, the momentum shifted in the Premier team’s favour by the end of the third quarter to lead 49-46 as the team took every opportunity to chip away, gain a small lead and in doing so frustrate their opposition.
The teams traded baskets throughout the fourth quarter, but unfortunately the game came down to a pair of turnovers which Rosmini took advantage of in the final minutes. The final score was 60-54 to Rosmini College, meaning the Premier Basketball team finished second overall.
Congratulations to the team and to their coaches and managers for their ongoing support. The team will now look to regroup as they head into their National Qualifying Tournament beginning on Wednesday 31 August as part of Winter Tournament Week.
