Elmhurst are ISA London South Basketball Champions in 2015

Elmhurst School for Boys

13th November 2015 | Sport

This year Elmhurst School was invited to take A & B teams to the ISA London South Basketball Championships held at Virgo Fidelis School. There were ten teams entered into the championships with 5 teams in each ‘pool’. Each team was guaranteed 4 matches in their pool and the opportunity to play in a ‘place’ final.

After all of the pool matches had been played the ‘A’ team were undefeated, winning 3 matches and drawing the other, against the hosts ‘A’ team. In the ‘B’ team pool, Elmhurst started well with a win against Virgo Fidelis ‘B’ team. They then went on to lose their next game and draw their final 2 pool matches.

Ultimately, it was announced that the Elmhurst ‘B’ team would play Virgo Fidelis ‘A’ team in the 3rd/4th playoff match. This meant that the ‘B’ team had achieved 2nd place in their pool, which was very pleasing. The Elmhurst ‘A’ team had to play the winners of the other pool, in the title deciding match. This was Oakfield ‘A’ team who had finished top of their pool, also with 3 wins and a draw.

In the playoff for 3rd and 4th only one basket was scored in a very close match. Unfortunately, it was scored by Virgo Fidelis ‘A’ team. However, the Elmhurst ‘B’ team were delighted with their overall 4th position in the tournament. The ‘A’ team played in a close fought contest for the title against Oakfield ‘A’. When the full time whistle was blown, no baskets had been scored by either team. This led to the need for a ‘sudden death’ situation, whereby the first team to score a basket would win the tournament. Elmhurst had made a triple substitution before the final whistle and it was Seby Oshisanya, who had not long entered the match, who scored the decisive basket.

Well done to all of the boys who took part in this event!

4th Place, Elmhurst School ‘B’ Team: Lucas Heath-Pampin, Edirin Simister, Levi McKenzie, Nevan Chou, Asher Lamazan, Oliver Tchum, Vivek Kanani

Winners! Elmhurst School ‘A’ Team: Aqeel Khan, Mickel Goldson, Tobias Aiyeola, Tristan Davis-Thompson, Henry Farquharson, Emmanuel Akinrinade, Seby Oshisanya
