ISA U11 London South Basketball Championships

Elmhurst School for Boys

11th November 2016 | Key Stage 2

Squad: Temu L-A, Joseph U, Oscar S, Ethan S, Jaylen H-H-F, Temilade S, Joshua M-K, Joshua D

Elmhurst started with a convincing win over Oakfield ‘A’ team 4-0, with Temu L-A scoring both baskets. We then went on to top the group with a 6-2 win over Bronte an 8-4 win over Henriette Le Forestier ‘B’ team. This meant that a meeting with Rosemead, who had only narrowly lost to Henriette Le Forestier ‘A’ team in their pool, made up one of the semi-final matches. Unfortunately, Temu received an injury to his hand in the last of the group matches and was unable to play any further role in the tournament and although the remaining players battled hard, they could not overcome the strength of the Rosemead team without his leadership and influence in the game and lost the semi-final in a close fought match, 4-6.

Rosemead went on to meet Henriette Le Forstier ‘A’ team again in the final and won the London South title only after extra time. Elmhurst had to overcome Oakfield ‘A’ who we had beaten in the pool stage, to take 3rd place. Oakfield ‘A’ however, were just as keen to cement 3rd and played extremely well in the playoff. Although we had opportunities to win, Oakfield ‘A’ managed to take their chances to score and secured 3rd spot with a 10-6 win over the defending champions. 

Well done to the squad for demonstrating the resilience and determination that reflects the Elmhurst School ethos and we wish Temu a speedy recovery from his broken finger.
