Te Awamutu Courier - - News -

Thirst­ing for some fast paced ac­tion this week­end? Then get along to the women’s first di­vi­sion bas­ket­ball game be­tween the Waikato Coun­try Canons and Har­bour Breeze.

Tip off is 2pm on Satur­day at ASB Sta­dium at Te Awa­mutu Events Cen­tre.

Waikato Coun­try Can­nons are sup­ported by the lo­cal bas­ket­ball as­so­ci­a­tion — Waikato Coun­try Bas­ket­ball.

The as­so­ci­a­tion is de­lighted to have a first di­vi­sion women’s team for the sec­ond year run­ning and hope to im­prove on the 2017 fin­ish of fourth.

The Waikato team is coached by Tyler Wilkin­son. Te Awa­mutu coach TJ Pem­ber­ton has taken up the role of assistant coach for 2018.

The match will be cru­cial to the sea­son points tally for both teams.

Cur­rently sit­ting sec­ond equal on the ta­ble, Waikato Coun­try Canons will look to se­cure an­other win to main­tain a strong po­si­tion on the lad­der.

Har­bour Breeze are sit­ting fur­ther down the lad­der, so they too will des­per­ately want the win.

“It would be great to have some strong lo­cal sup­port for women’s bas­ket­ball on Satur­day,” says match spokes­woman Anna Wetere.

“Bas­ket­ball fans are wel­come to come along, the more the mer­rier.”
