Leeton Basketball Association junior report

A THRILLING finish B Grade fixture between AGS and Yara highlighted another high temp round of LBA Boys Basketball last Tuesday. AGS claimed the win by just two points on the back of 14 from David White, while Riley Bradshaw scored nine before fouling out for Yara.

In A Grade 21 points from Angus Morschel was the difference as Yellow narrowly defeated Thomas Service Centre by just seven with Seth Pearce adding 14 for the vanquished. Meanwhile a tight fixture between YAHS and Reds was blown apart by 30 individual points from Daniel Brennan to give Reds the win by 12.

C Grade was again competitive with impressive performances from a range of players. Possibly the highlight fixture last week saw Anytime Fitness, led by 16 from Blake Ryan, outlast a plucky Leeton Home Improvements outfit who were best served by Tallis McMillan, 14.
