Our Yr5/6 Basketball competition took place yesterday in the Arena and Sportshall with 12 teams from the Partnership travelling to Herne Bay High School.
It was an action-packed afternoon with an extremely high standard of basketball, extra time, penalty shoot offs and some admirable sportsmanship. All teams played with true determination and enthusiasm!
The group stages were extremely close with places for the semi-finals being determined by goal difference. Whitstable Juniors, Herne Juniors, Herne Bay Juniors and Boughton made it through to the semi-finals which finished with a nail-biting penalty shoot off for places in the final. Whitstable Juniors and Boughton were in the final and played some outstanding basketball.
It was a close game but Whitstable Juniors had the edge and won 2-1, with Boughton finishing in second place and Herne Bay Juniors in third.
Well done to all teams involved and thank you to Brian Steele who refereed.
