Melville Intermediate - Basketball starts for 2013

Melville Intermediate Schools Girls Basketball team started their 2013 Campaign tonight with their first game of 2013, a grading game against Te Ara Rima. We had two players from our 2013 team returning, Lonita (our 2013 Captain) and Nichola and the team was extremely nervous. Melville were behind 0-10 after the first few minutes, down by three points at the end of the first quarter and then down by five at half time. Improvement in the third quater saw the lead to Te Ara Rima cut to one point, followed by a shut out in the fourth quarter which saw Melville emerge victorious 36-30. Anathaylia top scored for Melville with 12 points and Lonita supported well with 11.
