Melville Intermediate - Inter Intermediate Basketball 2012

Today Melville Intermediate competed in the Waikato Inter Intermediate Basketball Competition for 2012 held at the Te Awamutu Events Centre.  The Melville Boys found the going a little tough, losing to Te Awamutu Intermediate first up 15-24, before drawing with Cambridge 8-8.  They then lost to Tokoroa Intermediate 2-12 before finishing up against semi-finalists Peachgrove Intermediate School and beating them 14-10.   The Boys finished 5th overall.

The Girls were unbeaten for the tournament.  They defeated Cambridge Middle School in the first game 12-6, before defeating defending champions Peachgrove Intermediate School 14-12.  They then took on Te Awamutu Intermediate and defeated them 8-4.  This put Melville into the Semi-Final against Berkley Middle School.  Melville defeated them 18-2 to book a place in the final against Matamata Intermediate.  Matamata went into the final with some amazing stats- they had not conceded a point in any game, and the final was a closely fought affair.  It was 8-4 to Melville at half time and in the second half Melville were able to claim the slenderest of wins 14-12.  This makes Melville the 2012 Waikato Champions and is a fantastic build up to the NZAIMS Tournament which starts this Sunday!
