DHS win against Glenwood and Alexandra

2009-11-10 00:00

DURBAN High School continued with their good basketball results winning comfortably against Glenwood and Alexandra­.

Alex managed a good win against St Charles during the week and Maritzburg College Stayers beat Michaelhouse with their full side, after losing to them in the first term.

In a tight match last Thursday, Alex played St Charles and with the sides evenly matched it was exciting throughout.

At half time Alex led 25-18 but then they lost the third quarter allowing St Charles to catch up, being 38-36 behind­.

St Charles then drew level shortly after the beginning of the fourth quarter and then went ahead. This stimulated­ the Alex players to lift their game and they then forged ahead to win 56-51.

Saturday was a different story against DHS. The Alex boys gave of their best but the height and experience of the DHS youngsters proved too much for the shorter Alex players. DHS led 52-25 at the half-time break and other than a third chukka which the Alex boys won 27-21, DHS were in command for their 131-57 win.

Maritzburg College was expecting a more difficult match on Saturday against Michaelhouse who had beaten them in the first term. However, it was the College Stayers who came up trumps on a very hot court, against the full Michaelhouse team.

Perhaps it was the conditions which gave College the advantage but nevertheless they were full value for their 49-36 win.
