Basketball Asteroids – 2 April 2019

On April 2nd, the Wentworth Asteroids played the Swish. The Swish are a talented team who won their group last year.

We were 3 players short and had no choice but to ask another team if we could borrow 2 players. As luck would have it, we got 2 of the best players in the league!!

The game started with a bang and it was a thriller of a game!  At half time the score was 10-10 and both teams were giving it their all!

The Swish pulled out all the stops in the 2nd half and the final score was 12-23 to them.

Player of the Day was Brooke Oliver for good rebounding, consistent defence and carrying the ball down the court.
Well done Asteroids!

Basketball Rockets – 25 March 2019

Rockets by name and Rockets by performance. Wow wee! this team did themselves proud yet again this week, coming back from being down 2-6 at half time to winning 12-10. Outrageous effort from the team against the Silverdale shooters following the previous week’s win against team Stella 16-8 to the Rockets. Players of the Day this term so far include Kerry, Harper, Eli and this week’s Player of the Day went to George – congratulations George. The whole team are really on fire and should be super proud with what they are achieving on the court with the help of their fantastic coaches who are there to support every game. The competition will breathe a sigh of relief as you have a bye this week.  They will need to brace themselves for the return of the Wentworth Rockets the following week!

Basketball Asteroids – 19 March 2019

The Wentworth Asteroids played the Red Beach Planets on Tuesday, March 19th.

It was another tough game and the Asteroids played well as a team and the players did well on defence. Aston shot the goals and Player of the Day was Konstantine Berns for his great defensive effort. At one point he took on 3 players at once and was carrying the ball up the court with far more confidence.

The final score was 8-14 to the Planets.

Basketball Asteroids – 12 March 2019

Wentworth Asteroids played the Hurricanes on Tuesday 12th March.

The Hurricanes were one of the top teams last year so this was a tough game and they beat us convincingly 24-6.

In saying that, the team fought hard on defence and were looking to pass the ball to each other. They enjoyed the challenge and took many shots at the basket. Aston shot the points and Ethan Jordan was awarded player of the day for his determination to hang onto the ball, fighting off the opposition and even diving for the ball on the ground!
Watch this space as this team is just getting started!

Wentworth Asteroids

The Wentworth Asteroids played their first game against the Smashers on Tuesday. It was a tough game and the Asteroids played well as a team with all players contributing to defence. First time players showed great promise while Aston and Amy were hot on shooting goals.

The Wentworth Asteroids had a tough game against the Red Beach Solars, going down 2-18.
Brooke did a great job of moving the ball down the court while Amy worked hard on defence. Well done to Oscar who scored his first basket this term, and to Amy who was awarded Player of the Day.

Wentworth Rockets
Wentworth Rockets played the Red Beach Stars on, Tuesday 26th February.  With 22 teams in total, this was a grading round.
This was the first game of the season and with their awesome coaches from the College and parents cheering them on, the Rockets found their groove in the second half. A stand-out game by Kerry Kong who took out Player of the Day.  Congratulations Kerry, you played like a star!!  Olliver Lee also made a big impact and Steven Wu chiselled his opponents on defence. A great effort by the whole team to start off the season. It was Nil-4 at half time with Wentworth Rockets still warming up only to come screaming back to tie 4-4.

Wentworth Rockets won the league at the end of last year and they are shaping up to pack a punch this term too – Yahoo! Go Wentworth Rockets!!
