Miniball - 09 August 2015

The Rockets completed a successful mission last week with a 6:0 win against Kingsway Red. In a superb game, the Rockets demonstrated just how much they have developed as a team. With accurate passing and impenetrable defence, they made it impossible for the Reds to gain or keep possession of the ball. The Rockets dominated the match from start to finish and Josh Hill was the well-deserved Player of the Day for his deadly shooting skills. Well done, Rockets!

It was lovely to see a full team of Comets soaring across the court  with the return of Michelle, Corbus and Alexander.  A tight game against Whangaparaoa Thunder meant that goals were certainly hard to come by, with Whangaparaoa just taking out the game 2-0.  Michelle Kim was our Player of the Day demonstrating her tough defensive spirit as she was always in position ready to defend our goal.  I look forward to seeing you all at training on Sunday where we will focus on stealing the ball from the opposition as well as practising our marking on defence.  

Basket ball - 09th August 2015

Having been undefeated last term, and with a considerable points margin, the Falcons have been moved into the first division of the Y5/6 basketball league. They had a tough match last week against old adversaries, NHFM Cobras, but worked extremely hard to keep themselves involved in the play. The Falcons made numerous successful interceptions of the ball and managed to score a number of times but, sadly, on this occasion couldn’t quite get on top of the Cobras. However, with new members adding their talents to the squad, the Falcons are looking certain to improve their gameplay this term. Player of the Day was Maddie Rist, who made her first determined appearance on court for the Falcons, demonstrating her talent in defence on several occasions.
