Basketball Scotland U12 Girls Regional Development League - Week 1
Sunday 30th October 2016
Report by S. McLean
Game 1: West Lothian Wolves 33-18 Polonia Phoenix
It was a solid start against a well organised team with quality players. We fielded a squad with a few debutants and to a player no one looked out of place with Eve MacDougall leading by example and brilliant finishing from all. Defense was very strong and grounded out a well worthy first win of the season.
Game 2: West Lothian Wolves 44-18 Boroughmuir Blaze
The second of 3 back to back games and the team had got into full stride with great D from players like Amy C, Aimee Skye and Ailsa. Lovely, mature ball handling and passing from the 2 Erins and Sophie . A good chance for the younger ones to stretch their skills with Amy C and Emma stepping up from the u10s and not looking out of place. Leya controlled the boards and finished some lovely rebound shots. Keri went to town on her layups. Well worked win all round.
Game 3: West Lothian Wolves 31-22 City of Edinburgh
This was our biggest challenge of the day. A 3rd game on the bounce and against a very strong Edinburgh team. Our tired legs showed a little in the first quarter and we were very quickly down 8-0. But our hours of fitness training played out and the girls rallied round in what was a brusing, emotional match and turned it round to finishing with a 9 point win. Great development all day from these hard working girls. Bet there was some early beds tonight and a well earned night off to go guising.
