Alex and Carter enjoy a good tussle

2009-10-13 00:00

IT was a good day for the visiting basketball teams as most of them won their matches over the weekend. All school basketball in the fourth quarter is played by stayers teams, which are the boys that will be back at school next year.

Alexandra and Carter had a good tussle, with Alex winning 64-55. Carter had the advantage in the first quarter and led 15-12. The second quarter was even with the two sides still three points from one another.

In the third quarter, Alex started applying more pressure and outscored Carter by 22-10 to lead 46-37.

The last quarter was again evenly contested, but Alex had done the hard work and they ran out relatively comfortable winners at the end.

The powerful Durban High School team showed that they will be a difficult side to beat this season as they won comprehensively against Kearsney. Michaelhouse was too strong for Clifton winning 60-26.

On Friday afternoon, Maritzburg College had a good win at Hilton, beating the home side 54-32.


Clifton 26 Michaelhouse 60; Glenwood 11 Northwood 54; Kearsney 25 DHS 72; Carter 55 Alexandra 64; Hilton 32 Maritzburg College 54.
