Emerson Park’s year eight basketball team are having another successful season – and still haven’t lost a game at Emerson Park since they joined in year seven.

The boys were crowned Havering champions for the second year running after an exciting final against Coopers Coborn at Drapers Academy recently.

The game was tied 21-21 at the end of the fourth quarter, which meant the showpiece clash went to overtime.

And Emerson’s talisman Jarzinho Morris scored the next lay-up before power forward Rajan Sandhu sealed the game with an excellent effort from just inside the three-point zone.

The year nine squad are also having a great season, beating Bower Park, Albany and Hall Mead to reach their final against Campion.

But, missing some of their key players, a depleted Park found Campion too strong and slipped to a 45-10 defeat.
