Un­der 12 boys nar­rowly miss out on grand fi­nal

Mansfield Courier - - Sport - By NAT TAY­LOR

AN­OTHER suc­cess­ful bas­ket­ball tour­na­ment was held in Shep­par­ton over the week­end.

With three wins and one loss, we only missed out on fi­nals by per­cent­age against a team that we had beaten in what was an ab­so­lute nail biter on Sun­day morn­ing.

Sam Kain was one of our top per­form­ers both of­fen­sively and de­fen­sively scor­ing 39 points for the week­end.

Com­ing back from an an­kle in­jury it was great to have Josh How back pro­vid­ing plenty of strong de­fen­sive and of­fen­sive pres­ence.

Sam and Taj Kyn­ner­s­ley were ter­rific dis­play­ing plenty of strength box­ing out/re­bound­ing and out­let sup­port.

Max Payne and Will’s one-on-one de­fence was fan­tas­tic and cre­ated many in­ter­cepts.

Dy­namic duos Alex Kip­ping and Josh Tay­lor were also fan­tas­tic demon­strat­ing plenty of ath­leti­cism and skills.

Thank you to our lit­tle champs.

Su­per proud of you all and can’t wait for our next hit out.

A spe­cial thanks to Michelle Kain who is our team man­ager ex­traor­di­naire, as well as Will King our su­per as­sis­tant coach/men­tor and to all our very sup­port­ive par­ents.
