U15 Girls Basketball: SHB Storm 37-26 Harrow Lions

U15 Girls Basketball: SHB Storm 37-26 HIS Lions

The Storm battled from behind to defeat the Lions by 11 points in a big day of basketball which saw a total of four teams from the Storm face off against the Lions.

The girls, playing at home, had the advantage of the home crowd as their supporters but they were no match for the Lions early on. Storm were struck on the fast break frequently and had little possession; Lions deservedly cruised to a 10-4 lead by the end of the first quarter. The Storm gradually bounced back, with Pink and Maysa scoring from inside the key and Honor netting a free-throw. The Lions attempted shots from downtown several times and still looked stronger.

In the third and fourth quarter the Lions and Storm were both scoring a lot of baskets but the tide swung towards the home team as the Storm offense started making some significant improvements compared with the beginning of the game. More players were getting on the scoresheet, with a 2-pointer by Jeannie being one such example. Eventually the Storm built a comfortable 11-point cushion which they maintained until the end of the game, where the result finished 37-26.

In other news, the Storm U15 Boys fell to a narrow 25-15 defeat against the Lions away in a game of few baskets (Source: SHB Sports). Time is ticking down on BISAC Basketball Day (Saturday 4 November) and next week sees both the U15 boys and girls play against the Falcons on home ground in what will be the final league match before the tournament.

The SHB Storm will be hosting the U15 Girls BISAC Basketball.
