Leeton Basketball Association junior report

JNR BASKETBALL

WEEK two of the girls’ Leeton Basketball Association Spring Competition was highlighted by a thrilling A Grade encounter between Leeton Toyota and White.

A low scoring opening term gave way to free flowing basketball after that point with Abby Favell sinking 24 points to lead Toyota to their first win of the season.

Meanwhile, Samara McMillan and Maddy Kennedy both sunk 12 points as Anytime Fitness remained undefeated at the expense of the Eagles.

In B Grade, 14 points from Georgina Dore led Eagles to a 22 point win over Thinkwater, while Georgia Mallamace (10 points) top scored for Warbah (29) as their miserly defence held Celi’s Buses to just eight.

C Grade was highlighted by a 20 point game to Nakeita Alampi as Kurrajong Shell remained undefeated with a win over Country First, while eight points from Tamika Rourke was enough to get C&A Plumbing their first win of the season over Anytime Fitness.
