National Cup: Redden Court 36 Barking Abbey 17
Redden Court’s under-15 girls got the better of Barking Abbey in the Dynamik National Basketball competition.
The Romford students knew they would be in for a competitive game, but the improvement the girls have made this season was apparent from the tip-off.
Redden Court started fast and hard, scoring the first two baskets of the tie, and they showed great movement to exploit the indiscipline of the Abbey squad, who received eight team fouls in the first quarter alone.
Excellent defensive work from Redden Court saw them hold and win their rebounds and they grew in confidence as the game progressed.
