This week there were 6 teams in action and first up was the Senior Girls who hosted 107. The girls got off to a flying start making all 4 of their first 4 shots as they raced to a 19-4 first quarter lead. They continue to shot well as they shut down 107’s offense as they extended their lead going into the half time. In the second half the girls continued to show their sharp shoot and strong defense on the way to a comfortable 48-15 win. Points coming from Emily (18), Kiara (11), Petra (6), Maggie (5), Sign (4), Maho (2) and Yeewa (2).
On Tuesday there were 3 teams in action with the U11 Boys who traveled to St Andrews as they looked to keep their winning streak alive. However dispite working hard and taking plenty of shots, the shots would not fall as the boys lost 14-8. The U13 Girls also traveled to St Andrews as it was a repeat of the Tournament finals at the weekend. The girls were hoping they would be able to avenge their defeat at the weekend but like the U11 Boys, the girls were unlucky as despite taking many shot, the ball didn’t seem to want to fall. The last game of the day was the U15 Boys who were home to Prep, below is Min (G11) review for KIS Today:
Guy’s four 3-pointers led the U15 Boys to a narrow 37-35 win over Bangkok Prep on Tuesday Afternoon at the Wolves Den.
It was a shaky start for both sides in the first quarter and particularly for the Wolves as they nearly ended the quarter scoreless before Poom scored the first basket with 10 seconds remaining in the quarter leaving the score at 4-2 in favor of the Bulldogs after the quarter.
The second quarter however, the boys heated up as Aeneas scored just 30 seconds into the quarter. Guy then later on his party started after scoring a 3-pointer and a couple of fast-break baskets to give the boys 14-8 at the break. The boys then went on a riot in the third quarter as Pavan and Peak’s great defensive work along with Guy and Kenji’s three pointers sailed them to a 29-18 lead by the end of the quarter as they looked certain to win the game.
The last quarter however scared the boys out for a while as Prep launched a full-court which led the Wolves to conceding easy baskets from sloppy defending and passes. Guy did manage to give some breathing space with a 5 point lead with a minute and a half left on the clock. But later the boys conceded needless fouls which led to Prep squeezing the difference to 2 points with 30 seconds remaining. The boys however concentrated at the end and manage to hold off to a victory despite the last scare from Bangkok Prep to maintain their undefeated streak!
The last games of the week were the U15 Girls who were home to St Andrews and the Senior Boys who traveled to Bromsgrove. The Girls came up against a very tall and strong St Andrews team and despite this kept the game close going into half as they were only down 8-6. However in the third quarter the Wolves were unable to keep up as St Andrews pulled away giving the U15 Girls their first lost. For the Senior Boys despite a slightly improved offense, the boys defensive still needed work as they picked up their second loss of the season.
