It was clear from the start that Saville's coach Danny Williams was not going to give the more experienced Proactive team an inch to move. Normally the Saville team would fall into a Zone defence and let the opposition players come to them but come finals night it was a different game.

The Saville team played most of the game in a full court man to man defence which at times made the Proactive team make mistakes that they wouldn't normally make. In the end the pressure defence got to them and they turned over the ball too many times with Saville capitalizing on the turn overs with scoring baskets. But in saying all that, the Proactive team did not go down without a very good fight. They made sure that all their big gun players were in attendance on the final night. But the night belonged to the young Saville team, with an average age of just 15 it will be worth your time keeping an eye on their progress. Final score was 38-28.

When Takitumu powerhouse Lucy was fouled out of the game Puaikura knew they were home with the victory.   [read more]

Between the 2 girls they scored 60% of the total game score but Richelle and her teamates came out with the win. Takitumu had height on their side but could not match the quickness of the Puaikura girls.   [read more]
