On Friday evening, the Year 5 Basketball team went to Sports Central in Newcastle to take part in the Gateshead Finals of the Hoops4Health tournament. In the semi-final, the team had all the play against St. Agnes and were the worthy winners despite the narrow scoreline of 4-nil. The winning baskets were scored by Magan and Euan. After watching the Newcastle Eagles play their first half against the Bristol Flyers, the team were on court again and played a very close match against Crookhill. Despite again having most of the play, the final scoreline was 0-0, so the match was decided by a shoot-out. Fortunately, we had Hollie Allison on our team, who was the only one of the 4 players to score and the match was won!! We stayed until after the second half of the Eagles match (the Eagles won!) so we could have our photograph taken with the Eagles players.
All the children were extremely well-behaved and we had a great night. Thank you to the staff who attended and the parents and carers who supported us. Well done to Magan Johnston, Euan Wood, Hollie Allison, Josh Sample, Billy Ford, Caleb Dickson, Megan Cusack and Aaron Wheeler.
