Basketball Competition

On Wednesday 18th November, the school basketball team went to HBHS to take part in the Herne Bay and East Kent Coastal basketball competition. Twenty teams took part and were divided into groups of five. The top two teams in each group then went into the quarter finals. Our team played well in their group, winning all four games against Luddenham, Brairy, Davington, and Ospringe  thus putting them top of their group and into the quarter finals where they faced Hampton.  The quarter final against Hampton was very close and at the end of normal time the score was 6-6. Extra time was played and our team won it with a golden basket. In the semi-final, the team played Herne and in another close match Herne scored a basket in the last minute to win 4-3. In a very strong competition, the school basketball team came joint third. Herne went on to beat Davington in the final. Well done Herne Bay Juniors!
