Year 7 Basketball

Year 7 played their first basketball fixture representing Southam College against Campion on Tuesday evening. The boys started brightly and the first basket was scored by Captain Dom after some good team play. Spike scored his first basket of the evening almost immediately after to give Southam a 4-0 lead. Some neat interchanges gave Southam plenty of chances to score but they couldn’t capitalise until the last play where Jacob scored a free throw.
The second quarter started in a similar fashion, Southam conceded the first basket but then had strong defence and extended their lead after Jack scored a great basket after a quick break away. Spike doubled his tally with a good set shot before Dom scored again after terrific work in defence by Noah to steal the ball. Half time score 11-2.
Southam didn’t score in the third quarter but showed some gritty defence through Blake, Noah and Jake who all intercepted and started attacks well.
The 4th quarter was all about Jack, 3 baskets scored. The first was a clever lay up after a smart pass from Jacob, the second was a set shot after support from Dom before arguably the best basket of the evening which was a a lay up after a lovely spin and dribble.
Final score 17-4 to Southam.
MVP- Dom for fantastic link up play and crucial baskets when the game was tight.
A fantastic first game from the year 7s. The boys were strong in defence and clinical in attack. A good performance to build upon.
Well done year 7.

Southam girls footballers headed to Myton for their third week of league fixtures last night. Both teams had a brilliant evening of football, with some amazing skills and goals! Southam 1 played Aylesford and Myton and showed their outstanding abilities with their fancy footwork, shooting and defending. Holly F played a solid defender, protecting Alice C in goal and using her football knowledge to outwit the attack, giving the ball nicely to Evie C, Sienna V, Abbey G-S and Maddie N. In attack Maddie N used her speed to dribble past the defence of both teams and score some fantastic goals. Abbey G-S nearly got a hat trick in the second game, but narrowly mised out due to the final whistle!

Southam 2 also had a successful evening, having struggled in the last couple of weeks Flo M, Jess P, Lola C, Emily S, Marie G, Isabel S and Aimee S had lots of work to do. The team started strong against tough competition and fought off the attack and defence to finish 0-0 against a good Myton team. With the new additions of Katie D and Lauren B the team seemed more confident! They then had competition from Aylesford and although Aylesford got 1 goal the Southam team kept fighting till the end to finish 1-0 down.

A very successful evening for both teams, lots of positives looking forward to the next couple of weeks. The competition overall seems tight and the title is anyone’s for the taking!

Well done, Miss MacLachlan
