The action was intense and exciting from the start of both games as both sides in each match we equally skilled. There were many exciting plays.
In both matches, Taihu scored first making the match 1 to 0. However our boys fought back hard tying the score one all in the final minutes of both games.
The final score in both matches were 1 to 1 ties.
Defensive standouts were Grade 7 Gavin Si leading the U 15 squad in steals and Grade 11 Peter Yang leading the U19 squad in takeaways.
