The Crestwood U12 Team travelled to Branksome Hall to compete in the final, weekend tournament of the season. The girls got off to a hot start in the first game against Kingsway College, opening with a 6-2 run. By halftime, the team was rolling along with a 12-8 lead. The girls continued their excellent play into the 2nd half moving the ball with precision and making smart decisions on the court. The final score was 24-16 for Crestwood and the girls were off to the Championship Game against Branksome Hall.
The girls put their game faces on knowing they were up against stiff competition in the Athletic Centre. It was a back and forth first half with the girls giving it their all. The U12’s were up by 1 point at the break, as a result of a solid team effort. As the game wore on, the girls lost steam sprinting across the bigger court. The final score was 36-27 Branksome Hall.
We could not be more proud of the dedication and growth the U12 Girls showed this season! They played like a true team and learned how to trust each other and their own abilities. We hope the girls’ love of basketball will continue in the years to come!
