Y5 Basketball Stars Reach Finals

Growing and learning together

February 3rd, 2020

Three Y5 teams took part in the Newcastle Eagles Hoops4Health Tournament on Friday 31 January 2020 at the Eagles Arena on Scotswood Rd.  All three teams enjoyed success in their individual groups but it was Redesdale 1 that topped their group with convincing victories against: Christchurch; Cullercoats; New York and Monkhouse.  After scoring 48 points and only conceding 4, Redesdale 1 qualified for the knock out match to determine who would move on to the Grand Finals on Friday 28 February 2020 and take part in a semi-final for the chance to play in the final, at half-time, on the main court, crowd and all!

The knock-out game was an all Wallsend local tie against rivals, Wallsend Jubilee! After a nervy start, Redesdale piled on the pressure, attempting shot after shot after shot and showcasing their talents.  Despite a few good chances coming Wallsend Jubilee’s way, Redesdale scored three unanswered baskets and were victorious 6-0.
