Our U17s squad was impressive last night in their first ever match, taking a decisive win away against the established Wincanton Wizards.
Harley, Henry, Jake, Arya, Daniel and Edi showed great team work throughout against the home team that had 15 players at their disposal. Despite weary legs coming into the 4th quarter where our lead dropped to 8, they found an extra gear and widened the gap to 18 at the close.
Needless to say Coach Darren and I are extremely proud of the team who put together all the recent weeks of hard training and learning which resulted in a solid performance throughout. Turnovers were minimal as were unforced errors. As the players know, we don’t do individual stats being that we focus on us being a team where team stats matter more, but it felt like the baskets, boards and assists were shared fairly evenly between all 6 players. All told, a great performance and result. Best wishes to Dom, Joshua and Tom who couldn’t make it for reasons outside their control. Next time guys.
A huge thank you to our new U17s sponsor – Chat-Com – who without their help the team wouldn’t have been able to rock their stunning new practice jerseys. Check out the pic below.
Lastly, a huge thanks also to Coach Andrew and all the Wizard players for hosting us in great spirit. We intend to see the Wizards again in September at our home for a rematch. In the meantime we shall be looking at other clubs to sharpen our Piranha teeth on as we look to start our 2021/22 season in October as a tight unit.
