North Coast team comes good at end

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - FIND A -

FIVE boys from Coffs Har­bour made their way to Tam­worth for the New South Wales Pri­mary School Sport As­so­ci­a­tion (PSSA) boys’ bas­ket­ball carnival.

Af­ter two rounds of tri­als, Jack Bar­ton, Kaspa Ngohset, Levi McGre­gor, Jade Kitch­ing and Jonathon Or­ange were picked in the North Coast team.

The quin­tet had only one train­ing ses­sion prior to the tour­na­ment with their team­mates from By­ron Bay, Lis­more and Yamba.

De­spite this, ex­pec­ta­tions were high for the boys to come to­gether on the courts and play as a uni­fied team.

It took the first two games for the North Coast team to find its groove and in their third game against Bar­rier they tri­umphed with a fi­nal score of 46-30.

They played out­stand­ing de­fence through­out the week but their shots were just not sink­ing con­sis­tently to match their op­po­nents’ scores on the board.

They ended their cam­paign on a high note, beat­ing North West with a lay-up in the last minute of the game to se­cure a 37-35 win.
