On Tuesday 14th May Melville Intermediate Girls Basketball team went to play at the YMCA in the Hamilton Tuesday night competition. The team was scheduled to play against a Peachgrove Intermediate Girls team but discovered that we were playing their Boys 'B' team instead. A close first quarter saw the score 8-8, Peachgrove took a lead into half time of four points, before the third quarter ended up tied again, this time at 22 all. In the final quarter Melville Intermediate pulled away able to defeat Peachgrove Intermediate 30-24. We had a couple of players sick, Leseili had a hurt hand so she could only play one handed! These highlights were filmed by Hayley Jade. Melville Intermediate are in thier red and green top while Peachgrove are wearing the Maroon with gold
