U10 Girls (Report by Paul Meldrum)
"Our under 10 Girls Wolvettes took to the court for the second time this season , and had a blast , wooing and wowing the raucous crowd with some sparkling basketball.
Game 1 was a 'no-show' , so we had an inter wolves friendly game. This proved to be a great warmup for the games ahead, especially for our debutants, Leah & Jessica, who breezed into the Blaze game and helped the team to a good win on the back of some good finishing and fast breaking.
Our game with Stirling Knights was a close one and our Wolvettes just slipped back down the stretch. Plenty of baskets for everyone and some great ball movement from Erin M in particular setting up good opportunities for her team mates .
Super Fun , good progress, and lots of energy shown out their today."
U10 Boys (Report by David Smith)
"With a slightly revised squad from the RDL tournament earlier in the month, it would be interesting to see how this squad would gel and what development had been made as a result.
Game 1 proved to be an absolute delight for all.
A shot from the half court and plenty of dribble penetration by Aiden
A spin move and drained jumper from Jamie - cruelly ruled as a travel (Never ref!), great running, dribbling and defence from Tyler, Lewis, Finlay and Paul, resulting in baskets and great passing. A couple of great bounce pass moves from Ewen splitting the defence open for an easy look at the basket for a team mate. Again Sam showed all his skills, dribble penetration, passing, defence and who could forget the "Golden Basket" winner in OT!!!
Game 2 provided our wolves team with a physically tough encounter and the team just couldn't get going. In the interest of development however these lads showed the type of persistence, determination and desire that will benefit the wolves for years to come!
Ben, Finlay (Jnr) and Rory all slotted into the team brilliantly, getting straight into the competitive action showing no signs of nerves - well done lads.
Plenty to be praised for lads - but plenty to work on!!!!! bring it on :)"
