Langton Globetrotters off to the finals..

“On Wednesday 8th February, we took part in the Basketball finals at Lady Lumley’s, as we’d won the qualifier earlier on. Our team consisted of ; Constance, Oliver S, Oliver T, Louis, Martha, John, Olivia H, Arthur and James.

“Our first game was against Ruswarp which we won 8-4, after a very fast match.

“Next we played St Joe’s , who had won their last match, so we needed to win to get through to the finals. St Joe’s scored first, but we came back to ensure a 2-2 draw. One of the referees misunderstood the score and said it was 6-4, but luckily Mr Woods told them the actual score. This meant that, on goal difference, we’d won our  group so we were in the final!

“In the final, we played Helmsley, who were very tall. Although we tried our best, they beat us 10-0 after scoring 5 baskets. We had a lot of chances, but we were quite tired after all the other matches so couldn't quite get one in.

“Overall, we came 2nd out of ALL the other schools from every qualifier, which was really good and we were really pleased with how we played. Helmsley won, but everybody had a great time!”
