On Tuesday the 24th of September the Girls and Boys Basketball teams from Melville Intermediate went to Te Awamutu for the Inter Intermedidate Tournament. Our first game was against Fairfield Intermediate. They didn't turn up so we had to verse people from other teams. Our second game was against Morrinsville Intermediate, we won that game and in the end the score was 12-8. We were able to ge those points in the last minute. Our third game was against Berkly. We lost by miles but still stuck in the game. Our fourth game was against Matamata Intermediate and we defeated them.
Our semi-final was against Cambridge Middle School. We won that game, but it was a close game, because they were undefeated and we beat them and the score was 15 to 12. Now in the finals we had to verse Te Awamutu Intermediate. At first we were in the lead but then Te Awamutu fought back and they were in the lead by one point. In the last two minutes we got more points then the points came 20 to 17 to us, so 'hurray! to us!"
